Family Resource Management unlocks the complexity of family decision making for students, enabling them to grasp both the concepts and the underlying explanations of family behavior. Authors Tami James Moore and Sylvia M. Asay have provided a strong theoretical base to facilitate both understanding and retention and have organized the text to parallel the decision-making process employed by professionals. As a result, it includes sections on introducing the study of family resource management, identifying family needs, understanding resources available to families in differing socioeconomic circumstances, evaluating alternatives and making choices, and implementing and evaluating decisions.
Key Features 

  • Includes full coverage of topics required by the National Council on Family Relations for programs seeking to obtain Certified Family Life Educator accreditation.
  • Emphasizes the significance of diversity found within different family structures, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and varied, contemporary lifestyles.
  • Assists student learning with abundant pedagogy such as chapter-opening learning objectives; boxes illustrating content with real-life current events, news stories, and scenarios; and chapter summaries including questions for review and discussion.
  • Invites students to follow different families through the decision-making processes outlined in the course via a Casebook located at the end of the text.
