Université de Bordeaux

Timetable & learning outcomes

Course content will be delivered by national and international experts from various fields, thus favoring the interdisciplinary perspective of the summer school. Participants will learn in a variety of ways thanks to a combination of theoretical lectures, hands-on tutored workshops and round tables, covering the following topics:

 Day 1: The family: what definitions today?

Day 2: Assessing the family in research

Day 3: Family environments

 Day 4: Family adjustment in adverse contexts

Day 5: Integrated family care

Each disciplinary lecture will propose a specific approach to family science, and will provide participants with the field’s latest scientific insights, complemented by case studies and practical applications. Workshops will be tutored by members of the organizing committee and by doctoral students from the University of Bordeaux’s Laboratory of Psychology (LabPsy - EA4139).
