Family Policy Constructed Solutions to Family Problems

Synopsis

Family Policy Constructed Solutions to Family Problems by Shirley L. Zimmerman

The latest work from respected family policy expert Shirley Zimmerman. Family Policy offers the only single-authored reference book to provide both students and instructors with a comprehensive and coherent introduction to the topic. The author clearly and cogently guides students through the foundations, policy frameworks, and implications of policy decisions for family well-being, ending with a carefully considered set of conclusions and implications for policy practice. The book also provides concrete illustrative examples that bring the academic subject matter to life for students. As well as study and thought questions at the end of each chapter that help students test their comprehension of the material, deepen understanding of the subject matter, and spur classroom discussion.
