Why do some families rebound from stress with seeming ease while others seem to struggle? This anthology, comprised of 23 major articles from the family stress literature, addresses questions surrounding the increasingly diverse and complex family situations of stress and crisis. This volume provides the family stress community with an accessible, coherent compilation of writings by past, present and emerging family stress scholars. The reader includes classic and current writings from multi-disciplinary streams of work in family social science, social work, nursing, family sociology, family therapy, and family psychology.

Recommended for upper-division undergraduate and master's students in departments of or courses related to Sociology, Marriage & Family Therapy, and Family Studies. Also suggested for professionals and practitioners working with families in social work, nursing, family therapy and family psychology settings.
