The Presentation of Stepfamilies in Marriage and Family Textbooks: A Reexamination.
Coleman, Marilyn; And Others
Family Relations, v43 n3 p289-97 Jul 1994
Reviewed 26 introductory marriage and family textbooks for content about stepfamilies. Compared results to similar review conducted one decade ago. Current textbooks included more comprehensive material about remarriage and stepfamilies than did textbooks a decade ago. Deficit-family model was still present in current books, which focused on problems and contained more sources of stress than potential strengths. (Author/NB)
