The Family Well-being Research Network (FAM-NET) aims to support and advance research on the measurement of family well-being and pediatric quality of life, by funding new areas of study, supporting and mentoring the next generation of scholars, and providing education and resources for researchers.
Our M3EWB Network: Mechanisms Underlying Mind-Body Interventions & Measurement of Emotional Well-Being aims to (1) provide resources that assist in defining and measuring EWB across the life course and (2) engage interdisciplinary research that investigates the mechanisms through which mind-body interventions (e.g., yoga, deep breathing) promote EWB.
The Network for Emotional Well-being: Science, Practice, and Measurement brings together leading experts from UCSF, UC Berkeley, and Harvard to create a cohesive transdisciplinary network of scientists interested in EWB. We are a collaborative initiative of research scientists funded by the National Institutes of Health to advance the scientific understanding and measurement of emotional well-being. Our goal is to enhance empirical rigor and consensus around the conceptual definition and measurement approaches, to promote synergy across methods and study paradigms, and to catalyze mechanistic intervention-relevant research that can yield reliable pathways for improving EWB.
