The new interdisciplinary textbook, Families With Futures, offers a fresh approach to the study of families in everyday life. Learners are presented with an opportunity to explore not only "what was" but "what could be" for today's families, through a positive prism--families as dynamic, evolving organisms, and the family members as creative and resilient.

Families With Futures provides several unique chapters including a strong theory and methods chapter that positions family studies as a scientific discipline, grounded in not only ethics but also concerns for social action. Families With Futures contains thoughtful chapters on resilience, time, wellness, sexual intimacy and an Epilogue that frames family studies as a professional career.

Each chapter opens with a concise introduction and a detailed table of contents and ends with a glossary and a set of provocative questions. Each chapter closes with references for cited works, and electronic, organizational, and print resources for the students who want to move deeper into the material. Finally, the full text of the National Council on Family Relations' Ethical Principles and Guidelines is included as an appendix. Another appendix includes a comprehensive Guide to Resources for Family Studies, prepared by an information management specialist in social science.
