For Students, Faculty, and Staff: MyU One Stop

Welcome to the Family Communication Project

The Family Communication Project (FCP) is a study of how parent-child communication can promote the health and well-being of children. Our main goal is to understand how parent-child communication operates differently across various kinds of families, including traditional families, step-families, adoptive families, and families created through assisted reproductive technology (ART).

Learn more about the FCP, who we are, and some of our research about family communication and children's health.

New Focus Group for Parents of Multiples

Would you like to help us and others to better understand the strengths and challenges of families with adolescent twins, triplets, or higher order multiples?

The Family Communication Project is seeking parents of twins, triplets, or higher-order multiples between the ages of 10-18 to participate in a focus group research study about their parenting and family experiences.

To participate or learn more about the study, contact Kayla Anderson at or (574)-261-0450.
