This series focuses on issues, challenges and empirical best practices surrounding evolving families that impact upon their survival, development and outcomes. The aim of this series is twofold: (1) to showcase the diversity of evolving families and the multiple factors that make up the function of families and their evolution across time, systems and cultures; (2) to build on preventative, interventionist, engagement and recovery methods for the promotion of healthy and successful evolving families across generations, social and political contexts and cultures.
Each book in this series will present a coherent view of at least one theme of the evolving families with the intention to articulate meaningful empirical research that informs best practice in sustaining evolving families and their future. Possible themes can be around (but not limited to) cultural and racial backgrounds, disabilities, social and economic disadvantage, stress, inter-generational mobility, grief, transitions, internal and external conflicts, and policies affecting families. The books will also derive its contents from dialogues between researchers and practitioners and inspire further intellectual debate amongst its readers. All books in the series will address relevant research and practice from around the world, and whilst the books will be allowed to have their own unique feature, each will provide a comprehensive and stimulating introduction to the evolving families of this millennia.
