The Psychosocial Interior of the Family; a Sourcebook for the Study of Whole Families.
Handel, Gerald, Ed.
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)
