9780199860012: Exploring Family Theories

Offering a diverse variety of perspectives, Exploring Family Theories, Third Edition, is a combined text/reader that integrates theory with research and applications. In each chapter, Suzanne R. Smith and Raeann R. Hamon present the history, scholarship, and critiques of one principal family theory in a concise manner. Numerous examples and illustrations augment and clarify content, while application questions help students relate these theories to the real world. After each chapter, a follow-up journal article exemplifies how that particular theory is used to guide actual research.

Review:


"Exploring Family Theories identifies the key theories that are relevant for understanding families and explains them in a concise, straightforward manner. The application questions and sample readings help each theory come alive for students by encouraging them to think about real-world as well as research applications."--Rhonda Richardson, Kent State University


"Exploring Family Theories covers the ten leading theories quite nicely, giving students a sense of the history, assumptions, concepts, applications, and critique of each of them. I really like that approach; it aligns perfectly with how I teach my course. I am so impressed by this text. I will adopt."--Richard N. Pitt, Vanderbilt University
