The psychosocial interior of the family : a sourcebook for the study of whole families by Gerald Handel( Book )

41 editions published between 1967 and 1980 in English and German and held by 1,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty-three articles by different authors provide a composite study of the whole family and of the interplay between self and collectivity in family life. One article considers the family as a psychosocial organization; six discuss research methods for studying family interactions. Also included are three papers each on the family as mediator of the culture; on the meanings of family boundaries; and on the family as a universe of cognition and communication. Five articles treat the patterning of separateness and connectedness within the family, and two view the study of whole families in retrospect and prospect. Notes and/or references appear with the papers. (Df)
Family worlds: a psychosocial approach to family life by Robert D Hess( Book )

38 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does a family function? How does a family make a distinctive life of its own while living according to the values of society? In what ways is a family a unit when all its members have personalities of their own? How can we understand diversity among families? Robert D. Hess and Gerald Handel sensitively explore the dynamics of family life in five narrative case studies. The Clarks, Lansons, Littletons, Newbolds, and Steeles are all “typical” families with representative social, cultural, and psychological problems. By simultaneously studying each family as a small group and as a set of individual personalities, the authors have captured the interplay between personality and family as each group works out its own special way of coping with its problems. Further, they have formulated several principles of family functioning that help focus comparison. Family Worlds was the first, and is still one of the few studies, to interview each member of the family, giving equal weight to children as well as to adults, so each family member's perspective is factored into Hess and Handel's family portraits. A new introduction to the Transaction edition illuminates just how significant this ground-breaking study still is today and highlights the new implications it has for today's families as well as emerging approaches
The Psychosocial interior of the family by Gerald Handel( Book )

21 editions published between 1967 and 2006 in English and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This long-awaited fourth edition has the same goal as the preceding editions: to understand families in terms of the kinds of interaction through which family life is constructed. The changes in the family as an institution have influenced these processes, just as they have influenced the ways we understand and write about them. But even in these "postmodern" circumstances, an underlying premise of the volume is that two partners establish a family because they have selected each other as distinctively meaningful to one another. They will affirm, modify, elaborate, or retreat from various aspects of the relationship through interaction over time and in changing circumstances." "This volume contains the best available interdisciplinary work on the social psychology of the family. More than half of the selections are new to this edition, which incorporates a variety of theoretical and research perspectives that provide the reader with a range of authoritative and up-to-date sources on the family and interpersonal relations. The newer forms of family organization that have emerged in the more recent literature - specifically, single-parent families, stepfamilies, and families of gay and lesbian domestic partners - are included. Authors have been drawn from a variety of disciplines, including sociology, communication, family studies, human development, psychology, anthropology, and social work."--Jacket
Childhood socialization( Book )

17 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of authoritative studies portrays how the basic agencies of socialization transform the newborn human organism into a social person capable of interacting with others. Socialization differs from one society to another and within any society from one segment to another. Childhood Socialization samples some of that variation, giving the reader a glimpse of socialization in contexts other than those with which he or she is likely to be familiar. In the years since publication of the first edition of this book, childhood has become a territory open to broader sociological investigation. In this revised edition, the author has selected and gathered new contributions that analyze the agents of socialization, including family, school, and peer group, and explore the influences of television and gender. The balance of classical studies and more recent work reflecting changes in the family structure renews the centrality of this anthology for courses in the social psychology of children up to adolescence. While socialization continues on into the adolescent and adult years, childhood socialization is primary, essential in creating the human person and in shaping the identity, outlook, skills, and resources of the evolving person. Childhood Socialization is a dynamic volume that will be of continuing interest to students and scholars of family studies, sociology, psychology, and modern culture
