"Family Psychology: The Art of the Science moves the field of family psychology toward greater scientific sophistication and excellence by bringing together some of the best researchers in family psychology and giving them the opportunity to reflect together on the state of their research. This book is composed of five developmentally informed mini-books or manuals on major areas of great social and health relevance: marriage, depression, divorce and remarriage, partner violence, and families and physical health. Each manual critically examines the existing research in its area, systematically illuminating new directions for future research and discussing a wide range of relevant issues and diverse populations." "Family Psychology provides the next generation of theorists, researchers, and therapists with an in-depth and fresh look at the paths that have already been traveled as well as the paths that remain to be explored." Family Psychology is an indispensable companion for scientists and practitioners interested in a road map for family psychology. The reflections of the top researchers in each area will sharpen the research knowledge and expertise of scientists and practitioners in these and related areas. For younger and more experienced researchers, as well as for those contemplating entering the field, the authors point to pathways and strategies for unraveling the key challenges in each area, offering well-researched and compelling insights to guide future investigation.
