AFCC - OFI Stan Cohen Award


Oregon Family Institute decided to collaborate with the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) to administer an annual award bearing the name of our organization's founder, Stan Cohen.

AFCC is an international organization in which Stan had been active and influential, and which supports the work of courts in providing quality services to families in transition. For more information about AFCC, click here.

The award recognizes original, innovative work or research in the area of court-connected programs, services, or the families they serve. The recipient is chosen by AFCC based on their research and contribution to the development of programs and services for courts and the families they serve, and is presented by OFI at AFCC's annual conference, usually held in late May at various locations. A $400 cash award, and a  plaque is provided to the recipient.

We believe that Stan would have been pleased to know that this research-oriented prize is carrying forward his interest and sense of importance of the role of research in building practices grounded in good scientific methods.
