Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(11), 768. This sourcebook (see record 1997-30268-000), a compilation of five empirical studies, examines a critical issue for developmentalists and clinicians alike–the mechanisms by which the family as a system impacts child development and adjustment. Overall, this volume is an invaluable resource to guide research and intervention programs. In particular, the final chapter serves as a road map for future endeavors in this field by raising critical issues related to the development of theory and measurement strategies. It is a thorough and thought-provoking summary that highlights the complexity of investigating child development in family context. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
