Studying Families

Edited by:


July 1991 | 128 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
When studying families, how do researchers decide which family members should be included in their study? What if the family consists of nonmarried parents, or homosexual partners? Or what if a couple does not have any children? Are they still considered a family? These are just some of the questions that may arise when conducting research. In Studying Families, Copeland and White examine the inherent problems researchers face when studying this social group.

Too outdated. I wish there was a small methods book like this but one written in the past few years (this was from 1991). Darn.

I have placed this on my undergraduate interpersonal lives and family policy class, supplementary reading list.
