The reader includes classic and current writings from multi-disciplinary streams of work in family social science, social work, nursing, family sociology, family therapy, and family psychology. Key Features: Culture and Context. With an eye toward more culturally inclusive theories, the selected readings address how culture and context both aid and impede family resilience. Clarity.
