Beschreibung:

This book addresses the purposeful management of resources from a family systems perspective while focusing on the impact decisions have on the family unit and not just on the individuals making the decision. 

Conversational in style and rich in application and discussion, Family Resource Management shows students how to apply knowledge and theory to the study of how families manage their resources for both survival and fulfillment. Multiple perspectives are used to broaden the base of understanding in a contemporary environment. The book unlocks the complexity of family decision making, enabling students to grasp both the concepts and the underlying explanations of family behavior. A strong theory base and the organization of material within the decision-making process framework facilitate understanding and retention. The Third Edition has been enhanced through surveys of educational professionals and extensive research of contemporary challenges emerging post 2008 recession and the 2016 election.
