About this item

Citing the degree of change in American society as unprecedented, the book looks at the nature and origins of problems and changes facing families today. Representing an integration of research, theory and application, and drawing on the interdisciplinary scholarship in each topic area, this text is intended to serve as a basic or supplementary text for undergraduate and introductory graduate courses on family or social problems, as well as novices and professionals who work with families who are confronting a multitude of problems. The book begins with an updated overview of the research on family problems, stressors, change, and coping. Seventeen chapters are divided into six sections: theoretical foundations; general family stress; conceptualizing parental stress with family stress theory; transitional family forms; violence in a family and community context; families encountering sickness, poverty, and death. There is a list of tables and figures, about the contributors, about the editors, and references. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
