About-

The rapid social and economic changes, together with the growing diversity and complexity of family life, make it imperative for professionals to redefine the conceptual framework for understanding contemporary families towards more holistic approaches. The present volume brings together the contributions of different academics and practitioners working in various fields of activity: psychology, psychotherapy, sociology, social work, theology, education, medicine and other related disciplines. The deliberate goal of this interdisciplinary dialogue is a shift in the focus of the discourse regarding families from the all-too-common tendency of viewing them in terms of dysfunctions and pathological symptoms towards exploring and celebrating family strengths, resilience, hope and transformation.
