Individuals, Families, and the New Era of Genetics: Biopsychosocial Perspectives brings together state-of-the-science information on the psychosocial aspects of genetics and genomics from individual and family dynamic perspectives. Genetic screening, testing, and treatment for disease will soon be available on a large scale. This book applies cognitive-behavioral and family systems approaches to conceptualize how individuals and their families cope with genetic information. Its authors, all eminent scholars, cover theoretical, methodological, clinical, legal, and ethical issues involved in areas such as information processing, decision making, quality of life, behavior change, and family communication. The book targets a wide audience, at all stages of professional development, and establishes a unified individual and family focus for responding to the psychosocial challenges of the new era of genetics and genomics.
