About MFRI

The University of Central Florida Marriage and Family Research Institute was created in 2003 to support and strengthen healthy relationships for individuals, couples and families. We are committed to conducting and disseminating rigorous research that contributes to the understanding of relationships and provides useful clinical applications. We are invested in collaborating with our community partners to enrich the lives of individuals, couples and families. It is our goal to make our services inclusive and accessible to the widest reach of people across race, ethnicity, ability, religion, class, culture, and sexual orientation. We are also committed to the continuous care, development and support of our Institute team, as we know that passion and compassion must begin with ourselves.

To close out Women’s History Month, we would love to appreciate our Principal and Co-Principal Investigators Dr. Sejal Barden and Dr. Dalena Dillman-Taylor. Our mission of supporting and strengthening healthy relationships for individuals, couples and families would not be possible without their knowledge, skills, and abilities. We are so proud to have accomplished and compassionate women at the helm of this organization.

Thanks to these wonderful women we are able to provide a space in the Central Florida community where couples can have dedicated time to themselves and learn more about each other.
