Family Theories: Foundations and Applications
Criteria for Evaluating Family Theories
Firstly, Is the theory relevant? Is the theory adaptable to the people you work with or study?
Secondly, is the theory practical? Can the theory be translated into practice?
Thirdly, is the theory logical? Do the assumptions, concepts fit together well?
Fourthly, is the theory explicit? Are the components of the theory precisely defined?
Further, is the theory systematic? Will the application of the theory produce reliable results?
Finally, is the theory contextual? Can the theory be used or adapted to fit different contexts?
Family Theories: Foundations and Applications presents a comprehensive and accessible approach to the most current perspectives in the field of family theory.
- Firstly, Integrates classic and contemporary writings on family theories
- Secondly, Features compelling case studies drawn from the authors’ experiences working with thousands of students
- Thirdly, Represents an integrative use of theory, research, and practice
- Finally, Utilizes the metaphor of “developing your theory app” to translate complex academic ideas into accessible, student-friendly language
