In this book, sociology professor John F. Conway looks at families past, present and future and examines the changing nature of family. Figures from the first decade of the new milennium tell us that one marriage in two may well end in divorce. Conway considers the implications of divorce, the impact of social changes on men, women and children, and suggests how these issues might be better addressed through family policy. The new edition addresses the harsh new reality facing Canadian families, especially those most vulnerable as a result of the crisis of the family. The Canadian Family in Crisis is the first book to examine the drastic changes in the Canadian family over the last thirty years.

This book explores the ways in which anorexic women use their eating to control their bodies. It argues that the female body in modern Western culture is understood as open and accessible and female appetite as dangerous and voracious. Anorexia attempts to resist both these constructions in the creation of a closed, desireless body. Since anorexic women resist the power of collective ideologies their resistance cannot work - the closed body becomes its own prison.

Jugendliche und junge Erwachsene stehen Veränderungen, die in der Therapie angegangen werden sollen, oftmals ambivalent und zweifelnd gegenüber. Fehlende Gesprächsbereitschaft oder Abwehrhaltung sind die Folgen. Naar-King und Suarez erläutern anhand vieler Beispiele das Prinzip und die konkrete Umsetzung der Motivierenden Gesprächsführung. Es geht darum, den jungen Klienten die Diskrepanzen aufzuzeigen, die zwischen ihren eigentlichen Werten und Zielen und ihrem tatsächlichen Verhalten bestehen. Dadurch verstärkt sich der Wunsch der Jugendlichen, mit Hilfe des Therapeuten am eigenen Verhalten zu arbeiten. Die notwendigen Kommunikationsstrategien werden anschaulich im Buch vermittelt. Aus dem Inhalt: I Grundlagen:1 Einleitung. 2 Pubertät und junges Erwachsenenalter. 3 Die Grundhaltung der Motivierenden Gesprächsführung. 4 Personenzentrierte Beratungsqualitäten. 5 Auf Widerstand reagieren. 6 Change Talk. 7 Commitment. 8.

When I was getting my medical and psychiatric training in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the model of normal and deviant adolescent development was the white male. This was not surprising, since for every clinical or psychological study of adolescent girls done during the past 2 decades, there were seven studies on adolescent males. This tremendous discrepancy in actual clinical and research data between male and female adolescents led to the following myths: (1) Female adolescents are different only biologically from their male peers; they have similar psychosocial problems; (2) Adolescent girls have not been studied because their problems are not worth studying; (3) Studying adolescent girls might be dangerous to either the patient or therapist, or to both. In relation to the third myth, male psychotherapists were told that they should not treat female adolescent patients because erotic inter play could develop, which would be harmful to the patient and per haps impossible to resolve. Many clinics in the United States had a rule that young adolescent girls could not be treated by male therapists. It was thus difficult for girls to obtain treatment-for most therapists were males. It also intensified the feelings among parents, teachers, v vi Foreword community leaders, and the girls themselves that perhaps female adolescents were not worth treating.

Much has been written about America’s troubled teens, particularly endangered teenage girls. Works like Mary Pipher’s Reviving Ophelia and many others have contributed to the general perception that contemporary young women are in a state of crisis. Parents, educators, social scientists, and other concerned individuals worry that our nation’s girls are losing their ambition, moral direction, and self-esteem as they enter adolescence—which can then lead them to promiscuous sex, anorexia, drug abuse, and at the very least, declining math scores. In spite of evidence to the contrary in life and literature, this bleak picture is seldom challenged, but a good place to begin may be with recent literary representations of young women, fictional and autobiographical, which show proud young women who are highly focused and use their brains and good humor to work toward satisfying adult lives. This book addresses the ways in which 12 women writers use their heroines’ stories to challenge commonly held and frequently damaging notions of adolescence, femininity, and regional identity. The book begins with a chapter on sociological and literary theories of adolescent female development. This chapter also includes theoretically informed discussions of young adult fiction and Southern literature. Chapters that follow focus on adolescent heroines in the novels and autobiographies of the contemporary Southern women writers Anne Tyler, Bobbie Ann Mason, Josephine Humphreys, Dorothy Allison, Kaye Gibbons, Tina Ansa, Janisse Ray and Jill McCorkle and young adult writers Katherine Paterson, Mildred Taylor and Cynthia Voigt.
