Abstract

This chapter advances information toward addressing the development of optimal research designs for studying family processes in sleep research. That is, the goal is to present state-of-the-art information about choices to be considered in selecting behavioral and psychological assessments of family functioning when examining child development. It seeks to inform those engaged in pediatric and sleep medicine research about assessment approaches related to the inclusion of family factors. It outlines the pros and cons of various methodologies to aid in the selection of specific approaches for the assessment of family functioning as it relates to child development. The discussion includes notions of family systems that merit study, approaches to measurement and assessment, and analysis strategies for including relatively complex family processes in sleep research.
