BOOK EXCERPT:

Family Life Now: A Conversation About Marriages, Families, and Relationships, 1/E Kelly Welch, "Kansas"" State University" ISBN: 0205398642 " " "A candid and scholarly conversation about families and family life." We are all products of our families of origin. How that influences who we are and who we become is a central theme woven throughout "Family Life Now." This text combines the personal touch and scholarly expertise of an outstanding teacher to explore the ways that family members and intimate partners interact, and how families adapt to stresses, changes and everyday challenges. About the Cover - "Family Affair" by Julie Frith Virginia Satir (1917-1988), a pioneer in the field of family therapy, used the metaphor of a mobile to explain that families are "systems"-sets of interconnected parts. When one element of a mobile is disrupted, it affects the balance and movement of the rest of the structure. In family life, disruption and change is inevitable. Each event-marriage and divorce; birth and death; a new job or home; loss of love or physical health; the transition from one life stage to another--sets off a response that will affect every member within the family system. About the Author Kelly Welch teaches in the School of Family Studies and Human Services at Kansas State University. She is a Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE), and her teaching background includes human development and sexuality, as well as marriage and family. For over 10 years, she has consistently taught the Family Relationships course and the introductory human growth and development course. She is a recipient of numerous teaching awards, including the Presidential Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching, and nominations for the United States Professor of the Year and the United States Distance Educator of the Year. These teaching awards and nominations recognize her distinct, innovative, and energetic teaching style- a style students say puts them "on the edge of their seats."
