Product Description

Review

"H. Rudolph Schaffer has written a most timely volume in this era of broken homes and rapidly changing family lives. His book attempts to bridge the gap between what academicians know about children′s social development and family relationships and the practical concerns of nurses, doctors, lawyers and other professionals who must often weigh alternative courses of action as they attempt to serve children′s best interests in matters of custody, adoption or foster care." Review Of First Edition in Contemporary Psychology. "The writing style is accessible, the issues and debates are presented in a balanced and clear manner, and, as a result, the conclusions appear well reasoned. This text is especially useful for practitioners working in family health or family counselling agencies." Journal of Family Studies, Vol 7, April 2001

From the Back Cover

This is a fully updated and revised edition of a book that bridges the gap between research and practice in the field of child and family psychology. It is addressed to all those professional people – psychologists, psychiatrists, family lawyers, social workers – who are responsible for arriving at decisions about children, and who require access to an information base provided by research from which they can derive guidelines for action. Making Decisions About Children therefore summarises our knowledge of the sorts of issues that are of concern of those working with children including the effects of maternal employment and of divorce, the implications of different family types and the comparative fitness of men and women as parents. A number of new issues are added to the second edition, dealing with such matters as the effects of marital conflict, the development of anti – social behaviour and the consequences of physical punishment. The book bridges the gap between research and practice, and will therefore prove to be an invaluable resource to students, academics and professionals alike in a wide range of disciplines.
