The family wellness movement attempts to step back a stage, with the emphasis on prevention rather than cure. Citing parallels with the movement towards prevention in medicine, Mace draws upon the insights of noted workers in the field who discuss their own roles in developing family enrichment programmes. Their readable accounts of the philosophical and practical benefits of family wellness will make this book crucial reading for family researchers, social service professionals, educators, clergy, and students.
