9780415844482: Family Policy Matters: How Policymaking Affects Families and What Professionals Can Do

This best-selling text integrates the latest research and cutting-edge practice to make an evidence-based case for family policy. It uses examples from around the globe to explain how families support society and how policies support families. The book also moves beyond analysis to action with pragmatic processes and procedures for improving the effectiveness and efficiency of policies by viewing them through the lens of family impact.

Highlights of the new edition include:

  • Extensive revisions with many new references and policies that reflect recent changes in the economy, politics, and family forms and familes.
  • Many new learning tools including guiding questions, more tables and figures, chapter glossaries, discussion questions, and chapter summaries.
  • Enhanced global perspective with a new chapter (5) that features what policies nations have put in place to strengthen and support families.
  • A new chapter (8) that views how family considerations can improve the effectiveness of policy decisions on issues such as early childhood care and education, health care, juvenile crime, long-term care, parent education, and welfare reform.

  • A new chapter (11) on what the policy process and policymakers are really like including how a bill becomes a law.

  • A new chapter (12) that provides a theoretical and empirical rationale for viewing issues through the family impact lens and what innovative tools and procedures exist for analyzing the family impact of organizations, policies, programs, and practices.

  • Several chapters that review what professionals can do in the policy arena and how they can foster compromise and common ground.

  • Updated web-based teaching materials including sample syllabi, classroom activities and assignments, daily lesson plans, test questions, instructor insights, video links, web resources, and more.

    Part 1 highlights what family policy is and why it’s important and how family life in the U.S. differs from other countries. Part 2 examines the contributions family considerations can bring to issues such as early childhood education, health care, juvenile crime, long-term care, and welfare reform. Part 3  explains why polarization has stymied progress in family policymaking and guidelines for fostering compromise. Insights are drawn from the history of family policy over the last century. Part 4 provides strategies for getting involved in family policymaking. It reviews: the processes policymaking institutions use to enact legislation; new techniques for assessing the family impact of policies and programs; strategies for building better public policies; and various professional roles and careers for building family policy. The book concludes with a summary of how and where we go from here.

Intended for advanced undergraduate and/or graduate courses in family or social policy taught in human development and family studies, psychology, counseling, social work, sociology, public policy, home economics, consumer science, and education, researchers and practitioners alike appreciate this book’s integration of theory, research, and practice.

Review:

"It’s a perfect fit for my Family Policy class. I haven’t found any other books on the market that address the material in such a professional manner and yet keeping it at a layman’s understanding of policy issues." – Mary H. Garcia, Washington State University, USA

"This book takes Bogenschneider’s Family Policy Matters to a whole new level. As an instructor, focus on application is imperative to the utilization of the book within the classroom. Well done!" – Ann Michelle Daniels, South Dakota State University, USA

"This should be required reading for policy makers and the myriad practitioners required to transform policy into effective practice." – Michael E. Lamb, University of Cambridge, UK

"This is the top text in my view... I feel very comfortable introducing this book to undergraduates as well as graduates because of the level of the writing... It is hard to find a book that provides a foundation for family policy... this is the best available... Bogenschneider provides structure and tools for understanding how policy is done." – Clinton Gudmunson, Iowa State University, USA

"The book provides a good foundation to prepare students who will be entering the human services profession in providing and advocating for clients and programs, as well as educating policymakers." – Julia R. Miller, Michigan State University, USA

"I think this is an improvement over the previous edition - which I believe is the best of its type on the market." – Ann Mullis, Florida State University, USA

"This does an excellent job of drawing readers into the complex discussion of family policy issues. Both students and professionals alike will benefit from the unique theoretical and applied perspective of this text." – Adam R. West, Western Kentucky University, USA

"This textbook shows students the importance of policies regarding how it affects families in today’s society, what professionals are currently doing, and what the student can do." – Gladys J. Hildreth, University of North Texas, USA

"This is by far the most content-rich family policy text with the most cases, progressive models, and unique research... I've used [this] book for ... years ... I am certain I'll use the 3rd Edition." – Tyler M. Smith, Baylor University, USA

"We selected [the 2nd edition] because it was the most comprehensive public policy text related to families and appropriate for... an undergraduate program... I would recommend it to colleagues as an appropriate text to inform emerging professionals in the family field... The author’s experience and knowledge of family policy is very apparent." – Arminta Lee Jacobson, University of North Texas, USA

"The current version is excellent and I have no doubt the revision [will] be superior. My course was largely organized around the book and the Family Impact Assessment process because of its relevance to public health and policy development designed to promote health in populations." – Anne W. Riley, Johns Hopkins University, USA
