About this product
- DescriptionWhat goes on behind closed doors in families is examined in this text. Through his storytelling style, Randy Day introduces readers to the family processes approach - the strategies and behaviors families use to achieve goals. The emphasis is on how families work and interact rather than on the psychological, sociological, or ecomic processes. It examines emotions in families, communication, relationship formation/dissolution, family rituals, and power and conflict. Chapters open with a Preview and conclude with a Summary, Study Questions, Key Terms, and Suggested Readings. Principle Boxes highlight key concepts and a Glossary defines the key terms listed at the ends of the chapters. Significantly updated with 50% new material including many new references and examples, the new edition features: * A new chapter that introduces the discipline's methodology * A new chapter on relationship formation including partner selection, falling in love, commitment, sexuality, passion, and intimacy * A new design reformatted to tie in with the book's website at http://www.psypress.com/family-processes which w contains the Chapter Activity Questions that reinforce critical thinking skills, the Journal Activities that strengthen students' personal connection to the material, and the chapter Previews and Key Terms for review purposes * An Instructor's Web Resource at http://www. psypress.com/family-processes with small group and in-class exercises, lecture outlines in PowerPoint, topics for debate, suggested films, and multiple-choice, true/false, matching, and essay questions * More material on the role of gender, power, genetics, and personality in relationships; families from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and the impact of work and techlogy on the family; the changing nature of family structures including single parenting and gay unions; and stresses in family life.
