Family phenomena are complex, subjective and private, and their study requires methods and perspectives tailored to this complexity. In response to the rapidly growing interest in this field, the contributors to this volume examine the unique contribution that qualitative research can make to the study of families. Through both methodological discussions and illustrative cases from a variety of family settings, this book provides the crucial information needed to conduct, or learn about, qualitative family research.
