The Clashing of Symbols: Prelude to Child and Family Policy.
Melton, Gary B.
American Psychologist, v42 n4 p345-54 Apr 1987
Child and family policy often has been based on myths of childhood and family life instead of on empirical evidence. As a result policy tends to reflect irrational bases and conflicting goals. Psychologists can act as advocates by clarifying these myths for policymakers in family law. (Author/VM)
