This new second edition has been reconstructed and rewritten to cover emerging issues and trends impacting the modern family, while continuing to analyze important traditional topics. It highlights five themes: family prevention and wellness; family stress, work and personal life; the growing influence of media, computers and high technology; the need for all family members to acquire family resource skills and learn strategies for negotiation, decision-making, managing conflict, and finances; and the process of seeking professional help and therapy.
