Editorial Reviews


"Families With Futures is an interdisciplinary textbook that offers a fresh approach to the study of families in everyday life....[it] provides several unique chapters including a strong theory and methods chapter that positions family studies as a scientific discipline, grounded in not only ethics but also concerns for social action."

"Karraker and Grochowski take a family-positive approach....the book is remarkable in its breadth. As researchers in the field of family studies, their book suggests timely and intriguing contemporary questions of identity, diversity, structure, and change."

"Families With Futures is engaging and innovative, filled with practical activities, levelheaded insights, and real-life examples. This is a book that will appeal to all kinds of learners....The authors describe families as what they can be, without getting bogged down in the culture wars that have plagued academics and policymakers in the recent past....Multiple viewpoints are explored and diverse literatures are addressed. The authors cover a great deal of ground remarkably well--they examine the interdisciplinary nature of family studies, propose a resiliency framework, and address key substantive issues such as sexuality, health, relationships, intimacy, uncoupling, kinship, parenting, power, conflict, violence, money, class, diversity, religion, and values."
Katherine R. Allen, Ph.D.

"Intended for tertiary students, this substantial text focuses on the interdisciplinary field of family studies. It aims to apply family studies to everyday life, study changes in the concepts and processes of families and to encourage students to critically examine family relationships."

-Australian Institute of Family Studies
