Social Policy for Child and Family Development: A Systems/Dialectical Perspective (Paperback)Thomas W. Roberts (author)
- We can order this
Based on the belief that no single policymaking position has all the answers, the book offers a model that reduces the tendency to present only one viewpoint. As they move through the text, readers use this model to evaluate the effectiveness of specific policies.
The book addresses issues such as alcohol, nicotine, and drug use during pregnancy, social policy and poverty, education, family development, and technology. The material also discusses child abuse and neglect, social media and ethnicity, and the future of social policy on child and family development.
Each chapter includes learning objectives, key terms, study questions, a debate activity, additional reading resources, and a list of references.
Social Policy for Child and Family Development is well suited to courses in child and family studies or consumer sciences.
