Does it take a village? : community effects on children, adolescents, and families by Alan Booth( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although our society has made substantial investments in research and programs based on the idea that communities affect families and children, significant questions have emerged about the validity of the link between communities, children, and families. This book, presented in four sections, focuses on how communities undergird or undermine human development, how neighborhoods enhance or interfere with family functioning, how neighborhoods affect the development of adolescent problem behavior, and policies and approaches to strengthen neighborhoods as contexts for child and adolescent well-being. The chapters are: (1) "How Do Communities Undergird or Undermine Human Development? Relevant Contexts and Social Mechanisms" (Robert J. Sampson); (2) "Taking Neighborhoods Seriously" (Barrett A. Lee); (3) "The Prodigal Paradigm Returns: Ecology Comes Back to Sociology" (Douglas Massey); (4) "Resiliency and Fragility Factors Associated with the Contextual Experiences of Low-Resource Urban African-American Male Youth and Families" (Margaret Beale Spencer); (5) "Context and Meaning in Neighborhood Studies of Children and Families" (Jill E. Korbin); (6) "Issues in the Analysis of Neighborhoods, Families, and Children" (Scott J. South); (7) "Hyperghettos and Hypermasculinity: The Phenomenology of Exclusion" (Mercer L. Sullivan); (8) "Neighborhoods and Adolescent Development: How Can We Determine the Links?" (Greg J. Duncan and Stephen W. Raudenbush) (9) "Better Ways To Do Contextual Analysis: Lessons from Duncan and Raudenbush" (John O. G. Billy); (10) "One Step Forward and Two Steps Back: Neighborhoods, Adolescent Development, and Unmeasured Variables" (Linda M. Burton); (11) "Communities as Systems: Is a Community More Than the Sum of Its Parts?" (Stephen Small and Andrew Supple); (12) "Community Approaches to Improving Outcomes for Urban Children, Youth, and Families: Current Trends and Future Directions" (James P. Connell and Anne C. Kubisch); (13) "On Mount and Fayette: Implications for Comprehensive Youth Development Approaches" (Ralph B. Taylor); (14) "Developmental and Ecological Considerations in Implementing Community Action Strategies for Children and Youth" (Mark Greenberg); (15) "Community Approaches to Improving Outcomes for Urban Children, Youth, and Families" (Dale A. Blyth); and (16) "Neighborhood Effects on Child and Adolescent Development: Assessing Today's Knowledge for Tomorrow's Villages" (Frank Avenilla and Susan Singley).

Children's influence on family dynamics : the neglected side of family relationships by Ann C Crouter( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central premise of this volume is that children bring personal qualities to their relationships with other family members that help shape family interaction, relationships, and even processes that family researchers have called "parenting." The chapters address how children's personal qualities make their mark on families in ways that may in turn influence children's subsequent development. It is divided into four parts, each dealing with a different aspect of the topic. Chapters include: (1) "Child Effects on Family Systems: Behavioral Genetic Strategies" (D. Reiss); (2) "On the Meaning of Models: a Signal Amidst the Noise" (K. McCartney); (3) "Are We Finally Ready to Move Beyond Nature vs. Nurture?" (X. Ge, M.B. Donnellan, and L. Harper); (4) "How to Spin Straw Into Gold" (J.R. Udry); (5) "Infant Negative Emotionality, Caregiving, and Family Relationships" (S. Crockenberg and E. Leerkes); (6) "Child Effects on the Family: An Example of the Extreme Case and Question of Methodology" (C.A. Stifter); (7) "Sensitivity to Infants' Cues: As Much a Mandate for Researchers as for Parents" (J.P. McHale, K.C. Kavanaugh, and J.M. Berkman); (8) "The Developmental Course from Child Effects to Child Effectiveness" (P.M. Cole); (9) "Parenting of Adolescents: Action or Reaction?" (M. Kerr and H. Stattin); (10) "On the Brink: Stability and Change in Parent-Child Relations in Adolescence" (E.G. Menaghan); (11) "Parental Monitoring: Action and Reaction" (G.H. Brody); (12) "Parental Monitoring: a Person-Environment Interaction Perspective on This Key Parenting Skill" (D.M. Capaldi); (13) "Straw Men, Untested Assumptions, and Bi-Directional Models: a Response to Capaldi and Brody" (M. Kerr and H. Stattin); (14) "The Gender of Child and Parent as Factors in Family Dynamics" (E.E. Maccoby); (15) "How Do Children Exert an Impact on Family Life?" (S.M. McHale and A.C. Crouter); (16) "Eleanor E. Maccoby on the Active Child: Gender Differences and Family Interactions" (H. Stattin and M. Kerr); (17) "Reply to Stattin--Kerr Critique" (E.E. Maccoby); (18) "a Gender-Balanced Approach to the Study of Childhood Aggression and Reciprocal Family Influences" (N.R. Crick); (19) "Child Effects as Family Process" (L. Shanahan and J.M.

Pathways through adolescence : individual development in relation to social contexts by Lisa J Crockett( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[Publisher-supplied data] Adolescent researchers are increasingly aware that they must examine development both across time and across context. To do so, however, requires new conceptualizations and methodological approaches to the study of development, including attention to the pathways young people choose in adolescence and follow into adulthood. This volume assembles work by key researchers in the field who are struggling to understand how developmental trajectories are constructed and maintained throughout the adolescent period. A complete understanding of developmental pathways requires the recognition that adolescents' social contexts--family, school, neighborhood, and/or peer group--are important influences on the choices they make at this developmental period. Researchers have traditionally studied contexts in isolation rather than examining the interrelationships among contexts and their implications for adolescent development. The present volume seeks to address this gap in the literature, with attention given notonly to the interrelationships among contexts for white, middle-class youth, but also to these issues for minority adolescents in neighborhoods that vary in terms of access to resources. It concludes with an examination of researcher-community collaboration as a strategy to move communities toward a greater awareness of adolescent development and the problems facing youth in their community, and as a means to promote potential avenues for policy change and intervention
Couples in conflict by Alan Booth( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is based on the presentations and discussions of a national symposium on "Couples in Conflict" that focused on family issues. A common thread throughout is that constructive conflict and negotiation are beneficial for relationships. Together, the chapters provide a foundation for thinking about creative ways in which our society can work to prevent or minimize destructive couple conflict and to enhance couples' abilities to constructively handle their differences.$linebreak$Divided into four parts, this book:$linebreak$*addresses the societal and bioevolutionary underpinnings of couple conflict;$linebreak$*presents the interpersonal roots of couple conflict and the consequences for individuals and couples;$linebreak$*discusses what effects couple conflict have on children and how individual differences in children moderate these effects; and$linebreak$*outlines the issue of policies and programs that address couple conflict.$linebreak$This book concludes with an essay that pulls these four themes together and points to new directions for research and program efforts

The new population problem : why families in developed countries are shrinking and what it means by Alan Booth( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the United States, these effects are mitigated by an influx in immigration; however, each country reacts differently to the prospect of immigration because of the issues of national identity that are affected. This population shift is therefore of interest at the level of the individuals and couples who are making fertility-related decisions, as well as at the level of the societies that must come to grips with their long-term implications."--Jacket
