How We Study Families book
Those who embark on the journey to study family behavior soon discover the intricacies of the science of family life. The family science community of scholars struggles with some of the core problems of human existence: Why do some families endure and others dissolve? Why do some excel at collecting and using resources wisely and others do poorly? Why are some families plagued with chronic and destructive violence as a feature of their daily life and others are relatively violence free? To that end, family scientists collect data of various kinds, analyze ideas, apply theoretical notions, and try to make sense out of the world of family life.
