The first edition helped bring the family approach to health care into the medical mainstream. This new edition, like the first, provides health care professionals with a practical guide to working with and treating both the individual patient and the family. Tackling challenging and emerging issues, such as AIDS and the family, race and gender, child abuse and domestic violence in addition to pregnancy, child behavior and chronic illness, this volume is sure to be an indispensable guide for primary care providers.
