Dr. Lee Salk received his Ph.D. in Psychology. He was Clinical Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry and Pediatrics at Cornell University Medical College, attending Psychologist in the Department of Psychiatry at the New York Hospital – Cornell Medical Center, adjunct professor of Child Development at the Child Study Center at Brown University and Consulting Psychologist in the Department of Psychiatry at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. He had a column "You and Your Family" in "McCalls" magazine for 19 years.From Kirkus Reviews:
A tribute to family values--respect, responsibility, and emotional support--from the well-known child psychologist who died this May. A veteran columnist for McCall's and author of numerous books on raising children and family relationships (My Father, My Son, 1982, etc.), Salk had long been an advocate of strong family ties. Here, a moving tribute to the immediate and extended family that supported and sustained him during the painful illness leading to his death introduces his reflections on and advice for contemporary families. The remainder was inspired by a survey (conducted by a Washington, D.C., research firm) inquiring into current concepts of family. Overwhelmingly, the survey revealed that the definition of family has stretched to encompass ``people who love and care for each other,'' whether they are related by blood or marriage or are friends or colleagues on the job. New concepts of family embrace blended families, single mothers, two-career couples, fathers as primary caretakers, surrogate mothers, homosexual couples, and others. Salk cheers the new frameworks, but he urges a commitment to love, respect, and value each individual--especially the children. That includes understanding that teenagers are sexual beings; that day care is a reality, and quality day care imperative; that death, divorce, and violence are frightening and must be acknowledged, not ignored; and that even ``polite'' relationships have value. A compassionate and caring, albeit sometimes simplistic, call for adults and children to take the time to talk--and to listen--to one another. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP.
