Family Life Education: A Profession with a Proven Return on Investment (ROI)

This White Paper is specific to family science, a field encompassing those providing parenting education, family life coaching, supervision of parent peer support providers, consumer science professionals, public health educators and nurses, and others in roles that improve family wellness. This document was created under the auspices of the National Council on Family Relations, in conjunction with NPEN’s Policy and Advocacy Committee, resulting in influencing the US Prevention Services Task Force to recognize Family Science as the number one prevention strategy for behavioral health (2014). However, without the constant advocacy for family science, this distinction is no longer identified on their website.

The purpose of this White Paper is to promote family science through evidence, research, and resources so policymakers and decision-makers can be informed of the positive impacts on families, individuals, communities, states, and society as a whole. NPEN’s Policy and Advocacy Committee continues their work to stay apprised of and collaborate in research, advocacy, policies, funding streams, education, resources, and networking.
