The first research-based text that focuses on the impact of the father–daughter relationship, this provocative book examines the factors that can strengthen or weaken these relationships and the impact that these relationships have on society.
The research is brought to life with compelling personal stories from fathers and daughters, including well-known celebrities and politicians.
Intended as a supplemental text for upper-level undergraduate or graduate courses on father-daughter relationships and/or parenting taught in human development, family studies, psychology, sociology, counseling, social work, and women’s studies, this practical book also appeals to mental health practitioners, social workers, legal professionals, and school counselors interested in these relationships.
Noted for its interdisciplinary approach to family studies, Families with Futures provides an engaging, contemporary look at the discipline's theories, methods, essential topics, and career opportunities.
Featuring strong coverage of theories and methods, readers explore family concepts and processes through a positive prism. Throughout, families are viewed as challenged but resilient.
This is an ideal text for upper-level undergraduate and lower-level graduate courses in family studies, family ecology, and family science offered in departments of family and consumer sciences, human development, psychology, and sociology.
This multidisciplinary text highlights the development of romantic relationships, from initiation to commitment or demise, by highlighting the historical context, current research and theory, and diversity of patterns. Engagingly written with colorful examples, the authors examine the joy, stress, power-struggles, intimacy, and aggression that characterize these relationships.
