    This webinar is an opportunity for participants to expand their research skill-set. Much of family research entails interviewing individual family members. There are unique challenges to conducting health-related family interviews (e.g., addressing sensitive issues, being queried for information) that are not typically addressed in general research methods texts. The seminar will address these.

    Learning Outcomes:
    1. Present an overview of the range of structures and approaches for conducting individual family interviews.
    2. Discuss strategies for ensuring alignment across study aims, conceptual underpinnings, and interview approach and questions.
    3. Examine the unique challenges of conducting individual family research interviews.
    4. Provide guidelines for conducting individual family research interviews in cross-cultural studies.
    Target Audience
