The Center is dedicated to furthering research on geographically separated couples. Investigators come from many diverse fields such as psychology, psychiatry, marriage and family therapy, speech communication, and sociology. While this diversity allows for multiple viewpoints that ultimately encourage new ways of thinking about relationships, it also makes it difficult to perform literature searches and synthesize the available data.
