Thrice-told tales : married couples tell their stories by Diane Holmberg( )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, the authors examine married couples' own stories of their relationships. A representative sample of 199 African-American and 177 White married couples were asked to tell the story of their relationship. We learn of their courtships, their weddings and honeymoons, their adjustment in the early years, and their hopes for the future. These stories were first collected a few months after their weddings, and again in the third and seventh years of their marriages." "What features of their relationships do the couples highlight as central in the early years? What can we learn about couples' marital well-being by analyzing their stories? How do the stories of men and women, of White and African-American couples, differ? These questions were systematically addressed using extensive coding schemes and comprehensive quantitative analyses. Details of the coding system and procedures are included, making this volume a useful reference for any researcher contemplating analysis of narrative data. However, the key points are also explained in simple prose and illustrated with quotes from the couples' own stories, making the book accessible to anyone with an interest in how young couples experience married life today."--Jacket

5 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interviews were taken with a national sample of 2460 adults. The questionnaire focused on various areas of life in which problems may be felt - including marriage and parenthood, the work situation and general social relationships. Information was sought about the respondents' use of leisure time, including group memberships and time spent with friends and realtives. Respondents were asked what things worried them and how they dealt with these worries. They were asked also to assess present happiness, the happiest time of their lives, and how they faced periods of unhappiness. Additional questions probed reactions to normal conflict situations such as failure to do well or anger at someone close. Respondents' self-perceptions were explored

Social incentives : a life-span developmental approach by Joseph Veroff( Book )

14 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a framework for a proper theory of social goals, one that reflects a look at human motivation over the life span. It is somewhat complex, but not complex or refined enough to be a proper theory. It is not written explicitly for motivational experts, social psychologists, developmentalists, personologists, or clinicians, but it is hoped it is relevant for all of them. It cannot be understood how the study of human motivation can be advanced without accounting for principles of social psychology, rules of cognitive differentiation, dynamics of conflict resolution, or theories of organismic growth and development. This book sythesizes vast funds of information known by specialists in these areas

Early Years of Marriage (EYM) Project, Years 1-4, 1986-1989( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the Early Years of Marriage (EYM) Project was to determine ways in which the early development of marriage for Black couples and White couples affect the mental and physical health of spouses, marital stability, long-term marital outcomes, patterns of family life and, for those who divorce, individual adjustment to family disruption. The EYM Project began in 1986 with 373 newlywed couples--174 White couples and 199 Black couples. The marriages were all intra-racial and it was the first marriage for both spouses. Year 1 interviews, which queried the couples on various aspects of married life, began after four to nine months into the marriage. Very few respondents who originally participated in Year 1 of the study refused to participate in subsequent phases of the study. In 1986 (Year 1) and 1988 (Year 3) spouses were interviewed in their homes separately and together, with the interviews conducted by interviewers of the same race. In 1987 (Year 2) and 1989 (Year 4) shorter individual telephone interviews were conducted. In all four years, respondents were queried on a wide variety of topics such as feelings and perceptions of their own family, spouse, in-laws, and their spouse's friends, family planning, how many children they should have, how the children should be reared, childcare, and household roles and responsibilities. A series of questions was asked about reasons for getting married, how satisfying married life was, what, if any, were the special pleasures and good feelings that came from being married, how often arguments and disagreements occurred, main reasons for arguments, and how they were eventually resolved. A series of questions were also asked regarding the mental and physical health of the spouse, job satisfaction, job security, and how the job affected the family. In Year 2 and Year 4 interviews (Parts 2-4), a series of questions rega ... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR04557
Americans View Their Mental Health, 1957 by Gerald Gurin( )

3 editions published between 1957 and 1984 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1957, the United States Congress established the Joint Commission on Mental Illness and Health to evaluate the nation's resources for coping with both the psychological and economic problems of mental illness. The Commission sponsored a nationwide survey, which was conducted by the Survey Research Center at the University of Michigan, to assess the subjective mental health of ''normal'' American adults and to determine in detail how they coped with problems of adjustment. During the spring of 1957, a sample of American adults was interviewed on various areas in which problems might arise, including marriage, parenthood, employment, and general social relationships. Information about leisure time, past and present physical and mental health, and motives for affiliation, achievement, and power were also sought. Three questionnaire forms were employed, each addressed to a randomly selected third of the sample

3 editions published between 1981 and 1984 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This data collection contains 262 comparable variables from AMERICANS VIEW THEIR MENTAL HEALTH, 1957 (ICPSR 3503) and AMERICANS VIEW THEIR MENTAL HEALTH, 1976 (ICPSR 7948). Investigators were interested in determining whether the 1957 descriptive findings remained stable or had changed by 1976, and whether relationships established between sex, age, education, marital status, well-being, role experience, problems, and methods of dealing with stress were replicated or altered in the 1976 results. Variables focus on various areas in which problems might arise, including marriage, parenthood, employment, and general social relationships. Information about leisure time, past and present physical and mental health, and motives for affiliation, achievement, and power were also sought
