Day: An Introduction to Family Processes, 5th Edition

What goes on "behind closed doors" in families is examined in this text.

Through his storytelling style, Randy Day introduces readers to the family processes approach—the strategies and behaviors families use to achieve goals.

The emphasis is on how families work and interact rather than on the psychological, sociological, or economic processes.

It examines emotions in families, communication, relationship formation/dissolution, family rituals, and power and conflict.
