Family Structure and Effective Health Behavior: The Energized Family

Front Cover
Houghton Mifflin, 1976 - Families - 230 pages
This book successfully closes the gap between two important systems whose relationship has as yet escaped a systematic analysis. The family has a major responsibility for its member’s health but due to both dysfunctional processes in its own functioning and that of the medical system its health activities are often ineffective. In this text--both theoretically and through a field study of families—the author assesses various factors that enable the family unit to organize and effectively carry out health care of its members. This thorough examination of health practices and the family points out practical ways in which the medical care system can be reorganized to make health care more constructive for both systems.
