A Treatise On The Family

A Treatise On The Family by Gary S. Becker , Cambridge , Mass . , Harvard University Press , 1981 , 288 pp . $20.00 cloth . Maybe some of our critics are right that family therapists talk only to each other. If that worries you, season your clinical studies with these volumes. The Elshtain collection looks at historical models of the family with recurring emphasis on a feminist perspective. Becker, on the other hand, has written a completely economic analysis of family life, viz., “A couple divorces because unexpected information after marriage reduced their wealth from remaining married below their wealth from a divorce” (p. 234). This is quoted out of context, of course, but gives you an idea. If reading (surviving?) Becker does anything for you as a therapist, it will possibly be to open up that most forbidden topic in clinical work, money. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Family Process Wiley

Abstract

by Gary S. Becker , Cambridge , Mass . , Harvard University Press , 1981 , 288 pp . $20.00 cloth . Maybe some of our critics are right that family therapists talk only to each other. If that worries you, season your clinical studies with these volumes. The Elshtain collection looks at historical models of the family with recurring emphasis on a feminist perspective. Becker, on the other hand, has written a completely economic analysis of family life, viz., “A couple divorces because unexpected information after marriage reduced their wealth from remaining married below their wealth from a divorce” (p. 234). This is quoted out of context, of course, but gives you an idea. If reading (surviving?)
