Families and Professional Psychology: Policy Implications for Training and Services.
Dokecki, Paul R.; And Others
In light of the fact that America's families are becoming an increasingly important item on the intervention agenda, the ongoing work of the "To Strengthen Families" Project of Vanderbilt's Center for the Study of Families and Children is described. A model designed from an analysis of values suggesting that America should strive to become the "caring and competent society" is presented. The case of parent education is described to illustrate this societal model. Implications are discussed for the trianing of psychologists and the development of service systems. (Author)
