Six papers address issues regarding services for families with handicapped members. An initial paper on "Family Awareness" by D. Darnell reviews the systems approach, notes the structure of family systems, and discusses characteristics of healthy families. D. Hutchison and D. Darnell follow with an analysis of "Families of Handicapped Children," noting structural adaptations. B. Halderman discusses "Social Learning Theory" as it applies to development and maintenance of antisocial, coercive, or aggressive behavior patterns in the family. The concluding three papers address specific problems concerning divorce and single-parent families (G. Nunn), the stepfamily (B. Kopper-Roland), and foster and adoptive families (B. Halderman). (CL)
