    DescriptionThis book examines how to strengthen the family system while improving the psychosocial well-being of each family member. It describes diverse issues faced by ageing families, the effects these issues have on individual family members and the entire family unit, and methods of strengthening family functioning. The contributors emphasize the diversity that exists in families, looking at divergence within the classic family form as well as examining newly emerging family structures such as gay and lesbian families. Extending beyond counselling and therapy for ageing families, the book proposes preventative techniques aimed at building competencies and explores how policy intersects with family practice.
