The most recent volume in the National Symposium on Family Issues book series, “Rural Families and Communities in the United States” is now available from Springer Publishing. This volume specifically focuses on the implications of rural residency for American families, especially minority families in these communities.

Each chapter within the edition offers relevant discussions such as approaches that enhance the wellbeing of rural minority families, the challenges of conducting research within rural populations, some barriers to positive development that these communities face, and more.

The National Symposium on Family Issues book series is based off a two-day symposium hosted by Penn State’s Population Research Institute and Social Science Research Institute.  The symposium focuses on a relevant problem in family studies, and leading researchers present their work on the chosen subject.
