Appropriate for Sociology of the Family or Psychology of the Family courses found in sociology, psychology, social work, nursing, early childhood education, and human services departments.

The field of family studies has recently benefited from an injection of innovative research from other areas of sociology as well as from other disciplines, particularly demography and psychology. Changing Families: Relationships in Context is the first family textbook, whether Canadian or American, to integrate this new body of knowledge—which also includes additional theoretical perspectives—in such a comprehensive manner. It follows that this book is different from others in terms of some of its contents. As well, some aspects of its format and organization are distinct. This second edition  includes many new sections that reflect more recent developments in the contexts within which Canadian families live.
