Effective Family Problem Solving.
Blechman, Elaine A.; McEnroe, Michael J.
Child Development, v56 n2 p429-37 Apr 1985
Effective family problem solving was studied in 97 families of elementary-school-aged children with definite- and indefinite-solution tasks. Incentive and task independence were manipulated. It was found that definitions of effective problem solving based on directly observed measures of group interaction were more valid than definitions based on family characteristics. (Author/CB)
