• Description : In an increasingly diverse social environment, misunderstandings often arise between practitioners in the helping professions and clients from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. This book investigates the culturally specific beliefs and child-rearing practices of five major racial/ethnic groups: African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans, and European Americans. Analyses of case vignettes illustrate the book's dual focus on the practitioners' own views in addition to those of their culturally diverse clients. Guidelines offer suggestions for effective engagement and work with culturally diverse families. [...] by Publisher : 'Columbia University Press'

• Description : Although Carl Whitaker's work is considered brilliant, creative, and innovative, his techniques are commonly viewed as being beyond the reach of the average clinician. Some have thought his therapeutic successes reflect his personal charm, rather than a clearly formulated, consistent, replicable approach to therapy. Reshaping Family Relationships offers a model for understanding the process of change in family therapy from a symbolic-experiential perspective. It will offer a vivid picture of symbolic-experiential therapy, highlighted by clinical vignettes of the work of Dr. Whitaker, as well as the authors. Clinical material and case discussion illustrate each component of this approach. The symbolic-experiential model not only identifies the various stages of the therapy process but discusses the different interventions that are typical at each stage. The six stages of therapy included in the core variables of this model are: (1) generating a relational point of view (2) creating a therapeutic alliance (3) stimulating a symbolic context (4) activating stress to fuel change (5) catalyzing change through symbolic experiences (6) the end of therapy: moving out and moving on. This is a new perspective for examining, organizing, and utilizing the central ideas and theoretical tenets of Dr. Whitaker's many contributions to the field. Building on his previous works, this book presents a more rigorous analysis and integrated conceptualization of symbolic-experiential therapy. Carl's accumulated wisdom is presented in a fashion easily accessible to the average clinician. [...] by Publisher : 'Psychology Press'

• Description : Discussing Family Roles, Dealing With Anger and Emotions and Coping With Separation, Divorce and Conflict. The Life Skills series was developed to equip the busy classroom teacher with practical and relevant ideas for enhancing essential life skills in individual students. This innovative four-book series aims to fill the gap between the frameworks set out by national bodies and the delivery of sensitive, yet meaningful, lessons in the everyday class. The materials are designed for middle to upper primary students, however, the ideas and information are appropriate for all school aged children. The Family Relationships book examines family roles and also discusses sensitive issues that may arise in family situations. It provides opportunities for students to explore feelings and emotions in a range of contexts as well as promoting strategies for coping with difficult issues such as separation, divorce and family conflicts. Activities are designed to complement individual and class discussions. Many activities are designed for specific situations and are not intended as a whole class activity. Instead they should be used only where applicable or relevant. Practical activities include creating rosters at home, improving communication skills, reading stories about other people's families, examining personal roles within the family and brainstorming strategies for dealing with anger. Each book in this series contains extensive background notes for teachers, parents and students. Many sections contain annotated resource lists for multimedia, literature and general classroom resources. Extension ideas are given where possible and all activities are linked to student outcomes.

• Description : Kinship ties-the close relationships found within the family-have been a central focus of evolutionary biological analyses of social behavior ever since biologist William Hamilton extended the concept of Darwinian fitness to include an individual's actions benefiting not only his own offspring, but also collateral kin. Evolutionary biologists consider organisms not only reproductive strategists, but also nepotistic strategists. If a person's genes are just as likely to be reproduced in her sister as in her daughter, then we should expect the evolution of sororal investment in the same way as one expects maternal investment. This concept has revolutionized biologists' understanding of social interaction and developmental psychologists' understanding of the family. However, kinship ties have largely been ignored in other areas of psychology, particularly social psychology. Family Relationships brings together leading theorists and researchers from evolutionary psychology and related disciplines to illustrate the ways in which an evolutionary perspective can inform our study and understanding of family relationships. The contributors argue that family psychology is relationship specific: the relationship between mother and daughter is different from that between father and daughter or that between brother and sister or sister and sister. In other words, humans have evolved specialized mechanisms for processing information and motivating behavior that deal with the distinct demands of being a mate, father, mother, sibling, child, or grandparent. Such an evolutionary perspective on family dynamics provides a unique insight into human behavior. This volume will be an indispensable resource for psychologists, sociologists, and anthropologists, as well scholars of family, marriage, and animal behavior.

• Description : In the 1990s it is no longer "news" that families do not operate independently from other social organizations and institutions. Instead, it is generally recognized that families are embedded in a complex set of relationships with other institutions and contexts outside the family. In spite of this recognition, a great deal remains to be discovered about the ways in which families are influenced by these outside agencies or how families influence the functioning of children and adults in these extra-familial settings--school, work, day-care, or peer group contexts. Moreover, little is known about the nature of the processes that account for this mutual influence between families and other societal institutions and settings. The goal of this volume is to present examples from a series of ongoing research programs that are beginning to provide some tentative answers to these questions. The result of a summer workshop characterized by lively exchanges not only between speakers and the audience, but among participants in small group discussions as well, this volume attempts to communicate some of the dynamism and excitement that was evident at the conference. In the final analysis, this book should stimulate further theoretical and empirical advances in understanding how families relate to other contexts. [...] by Publisher : 'Routledge'

• Description : Family Relationships in Middle Childhood presents a study of family life among parents and children during 'middle childhood'. Combining the perspectives of parents and young children aged 4-8 in each family, this book is based on a study which explores how family members get on together, the factors both within and outside of the home that affect family life, and the role of family relationships in children's developing well-being. Including both lone mother and two-parent households, the study provides comparisons between mothers and fathers, as well as between mothers in different family types. It finds that young children can provide meaningful accounts of family life and have a role to play in decisions that affect their life at home; relationships between family members, rather than the structure of families, define the quality of family life; links between children's social competence; and the sibling relationship suggest that brothers and sisters have the potential to 'teach' each other socially appropriate behaviour.
