9780787999162: African-American Family Life: Its Structural and Ecological Aspects (New Directions for Child & Adolescent Development)

The extended family system has been recognized as representing an enduring cultural value within the African American community. Although socioeconomic distresses and unstable interpersonal relationships have been seen as basic catalysts for the development of this valued familial system, the persistent and prevalent nature of those same difficulties may now jeopardize its existence. This volume of New Directions for Child Development considers the current structural and ecological aspects of African American family life. The contributors review research and report on data that examine the family's support network and role relationships, the family's influence on the child's self-esteem, the effect of family type on familial and adult-child conversation patterns, and the promotion of family through social policies and intervention. This volume provides a systematic knowledge base and contributes to the understanding of the positive influence of social and familial support networks on African American families.
