Individual and Family Stress and Crises

Synopsis

Individual and Family Stress and Crises by Janice G. Weber

This is the first comprehensive authored text on stress and crisis management specifically tailored to courses focusing on the family. The book provides readers with an excellent balance of theory/research and hands-on applicatons and intervention strategies at a level that should appeal well to both undergraduates and master's candidates. Instructors of this course normally find they must supplement their core text in one way or another, e.g., to provide a family focus to a text on crisis management in general, to provide specific applications and intervention strategies to books that focus more on theory and research, or to augment a single perspective or theoretical orientation with additional perspectives. Weber provides it all within the covers of a single book.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
