CEU Institute for Family Studies (Instituto CEU de Estudios de la Familia) is a research and teaching centre of basic sciences and science applied to marriage and family. Its main purpose is to carry out studies about the family institutions, as well as disseminate, help and enhance different aspects related to the family environment such as: education, the defence of family and life values, eldery people, family policy, adolescence or marital crisis. The main activities of the Institute are training activities, thematic conferences, training in affective-sexual education and experts in the care of people with Alzheimer's disease, awards in defense of life and motherhood (CEU por la Vida and Bárbara Castro), research projects, doctoral theses and family therapy.
The Institute has its origins in 2004. It was proposed and promoted by our dear Alfonso Coronel de Palma, who now rests in the Father's house. He was the President of the Catholic Association of Propagandists (Asociación Católica de Propagandistas, ACdP) and Universidad San Pablo CEU Foundation, an autonomous and training institution, at the service of culture and in defence of the family. Remembering him is moving and he is well deserving of a tribute.
