Prevention in Family Services

release date: Nov 01, 1983
Prevention in Family Services
The vast literature on family problems suggests that most researchers and professionals see these problems as inevitable, and their own role as one of curing rather than preventing them. The family wellness movement attempts to step back a stage, with the emphasis on prevention rather than cure. Citing parallels with the movement towards prevention in medicine, Mace draws upon the insights of noted workers in the field who discuss their own roles in developing family enrichment programmes. Their readable accounts of the philosophical and practical benefits of family wellness will make this book crucial reading for family researchers, social service professionals, educators, clergy, and students.

Father, The Family Protector

release date: Jan 01, 2004
Father, The Family Protector
In Father, The Family Protector, Educator James Stenson explores how fathers exercise their powerful and particularly masculine contribution to family life. His research comes from more than twenty years of working with families from two highly successful independent secondary schools for boys that he helped establish, The Heights School in Washington D.C., and Northridge Preparatory School in Chicago. As headmaster, he made it his business to know hundreds of families intimately studying their family lives, watching their children grow into maturity, very often successfully, but sometimes not. Through countless conversations with fathers and mothers, he tried to account for the differences, looking for patterns of family life among those parents who triumphed with their children. What did these successful men and women have in common? What did they manage to do right? Most important: what could other parents learn from their experience?

The Changing Rhythms of American Family Life

release date: Jul 13, 2006
The Changing Rhythms of American Family Life
Rather, mothers have made time for both work and family by sacrificing time spent doing housework and by increased "multitasking." Changing Rhythms of American Family Life finds that the total workload (in and out of the home) for employed parents is high for both sexes, with employed mothers averaging five hours more per week than employed fathers and almost nineteen hours more per week than homemaker mothers. Comparing average workloads of fathers with all mothers--both those in the paid workforce and homemakers--the authors find that there is gender equality in total workloads, as there has been since 1965. Overall, it appears that Americans have adapted to changing circumstances to ensure that they preserve their family time and provide adequately for their children. Changing Rhythms of American Family Life explodes many of the popular misconceptions about how Americans balance work and family.
