Families Under Extreme Stress: “Normal” Stresses and Additional Challenges Arising from COVID-19

The Life Course Centre invites you to attend our Anti-Poverty Week 2020 webinar on the theme of Families Under Extreme Stress.

Panellists from the University of Melbourne (UoM) and the Brotherhood of St Laurence (BSL) will share insights from recent research on families' recovery from economic recession, financial and mental stress on employed fathers, and the systemic drivers of financial stress and the impact on children.
