The purpose of this Forum which was jointly sponsored by the Institute of Family Studies and the Victorian Child Development and Family Services Council was to enable the participants to discuss current and future research needs and to look at what was being done in the research area within the topic of the Forum - the relationships between the child and the family. The main aim was to identify what research was being done and to find out the gaps.
