About this item
Why do some families survive stressful situations while others fall apart? Can a family’s beliefs and values be used as a predictor of vulnerability to stress? And most importantly, can family stress be prevented? In this third edition, the authors continue the original commitment to understanding the external and internal contexts in which distressed families are immersed. But in this new edition, they highlight even more the multicultural differences in families. By using a universal stressor —a death in the family—the authors illustrate the vast diversity in beliefs and values in families, all of which can be found in American society. As they focus on differences as well as commonalities, the topic of family stress management becomes more complex with fewer pat answers or binaries. This lack of absolute answers is what provides a thoughtful excitement in this third edition of Family Stress Management.
