Readings in Family Theory is an anthology of classic and contemporary articles that demonstrate how theory fits into the overall process of scientific research on families. The book provides examples of the scholarly application of family theory to compare how people use similar processes in everyday life. Using this contextual orientation, the selected readings examine nine prevalent theoretical perspectives from both family and human development sciences.

Author Biography

Thomas R. Chibucos received a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from Michigan State University in 1974. He is a Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Bowling Green State University, where he also served as Director of the School of Family and Consumer Sciences for a decade. Previously, he taught at Northern Illinois University in the Department of Human and Family Resources for 17 years. At both Bowling Green and Northern Illinois, Dr. Chibucos developed and taught courses on child abuse and neglect, child and family policy, research methodology, and theory at the undergraduate and graduate levels. He is an active member of numerous professional organizations (serving, for instance, as chair of the NCFR Public Policy Committee), and his publications include Serving Children and Families Through Community-University Partnerships (Kluwer, 1999), which he co-edited with Richard M. Lerner. Randall W. Leite is Assistant Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Bowling Green State University, where he teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in marriage and family, family stress, and family policy. His research largely focuses on aspects of fatherhood, father-child interactions, nonresidential parenthood, and family policy issues. He is also an affiliate of the Center for Family and Demographic Research and the Center for Policy Analysis and Public Service, both located at Bowling Green State University. Prior to his arrival at Bowling Green, Dr. Leite spent several years in various university administrative positions. He lives with his wife Theresa and three children, all of whom provide him on a daily basis with a greater appreciation of the meaning of family life. Daivd L. Weis received a Ph.D. in Family Studies from Purdue University in 1979. He was a Professor in the Human Development and Family Studies Program at Bowling Green State University, where he had been since 1986. He was a long-time member of NCFR and had held leadership positions in his academic department and in professional organizations. He had taught undergraduate and graduate courses on family theory for more than two decades and was an active scholar on a number of family science and human development issues. Tragically, Dr. Weis passed away during the development of this book.
