Product Overview

Despite their flocking to social networking sites in unprecedented numbers, research confirms that adolescents continue to be influenced primarily by their families rather than their peers and other social contexts. Consequently, the family unit remains a vital setting for understanding and intervening with youth. Synthesizing important findings from the literature on family science and such related fields as psychology, sociology, social work, and public health,Families with Adolescents focuses a unique panoramic lens on the study of adolescent development.

This concise volume offers a clear blueprint for more consistently improved practice, emphasizing family process and structure instead of individual developmental stages. Its chapters deftly summarize the recent knowledge base across the mental health and social services disciplines, illustrating family concerns and theoretical perspectives coupled with real-world vignettes and making cogent use of family assessment measures.

Featured topics include:

  • Central concepts of family development, family systems, ecological, attachment, and social learning theories in relation to families with adolescents.
  • Impact of the family on adolescent behavior, education, and mental health outcomes.
  • Selected studies on parenting behaviors, conflict resolution, and other major aspects of families with adolescents.
  • Application topics in family-based intervention and prevention programs.
  • Integrating theory, research, and applications to create a ?triple threat? model.

Families with Adolescents is an essential resource for researchers and graduate students as well as mental health therapists in clinical child and developmental psychology, family studies, human development, sociology, social work, and education.
