The authors use an engaging narrative to create a highly readable text that offers insightful perspectives on the diversity of our modern society, including different ethnic traditions and family forms. The balanced presentation discusses a variety of theoretical perspectives (e.g., family ecology, structure-functional, interaction-constructionist, family systems, biosocial), emphasizing both social structure and the importance of individual agency, choice, and decision-making.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Important questions face any pastoral counselor when working with African American couples and families. Edward Wimberly focuses on the religious worldview that African Americans bring to their understanding of marriage and family, so that the counselor can learn the assumptions behind the presenting problems. Wimberly's treatment examines the social context of African American families, the separate issues for men and women, intergenerational factors, the impact of the life cycle, sexuality, affairs, and abuse. This wide-ranging book is exceptionally practical for all pastoral caregivers. The purpose of the Counseling and Pastoral Theology series is to address clinical issues that arise among particular populations currently neglected in the literature on pastoral care and counseling. This series is committed to enhancing both the theoretical base and the clinical expertise of pastoral caregivers by providing a pastoral theological paradigm that will inform both assessment and intervention with persons in these specific populations.

This textbook introduces students to the study of marriage and the family in ways to which they can easily relate. Giving equal attention to people of all racial, ethnic, and other societal groups, the author shows students that as families continue to change, they have more and more choices, but that those choices are also subject to often serious constraints on both the macro and micro level. The author's approach encourages students to think for themselves, and practical guidelines in every chapter encourage them to go beyond thought to action - to become part of the effort to resolve some of the crucial issues that confront all 21st-century families.
