Family Stress Management: A Contextual Approach

The Third Edition of Family Stress Management by Pauline Boss, Chalandra M. Bryant, and Jay A.

Throughout, there is new emphasis on diversity and the nuances of family stress management—such as ambiguous loss—plus new discussions on family resilience and community as resources for support.
