Bringing together the finest minds in family psychology, this book provides researchers, young scholars and knowledgeable consumers with five mini-books or manuals for understanding and conducting family research. The five mini-books respectively target state-of-the-art research on good marriage, depression, divorce and remarriage, partner violence, and families and physical health.

"Rather than simply castigating and discarding family interventions, professors and practitioners should expend the effort to become acquainted with and appreciative of the body of research literature that has been achieved, particularly in the past decade. Family Psychology: The Art of the Science provides important information of this nature and does so in an enlightening manner that students and practitioners will welcome."--PsycCRITIQUES
