Families and Their Social Worlds 3/e, leads students to view the family on a macro level by examining policies in place and how those policies impact families. Author Karen Seccombe encourages students to think about families beyond their own personal experiences, and even beyond family structure in the United States. Integrated coverage of important policy considerations throughout each chapter illustrates what is currently being done, and perhaps more importantly what can be done, to strengthen families and intimate relationships.
