Summary

Family Resource Management unlocks the complexity of family decision making for students, enabling them to grasp both the concepts and the underlying explanations of family behavior. Authors Tami James Moore and Sylvia M. Asay have provided a strong theoretical base to facilitate both understanding and retention and have organized the text to parallel the decision-making process employed by professionals. As a result, it includes sections on introducing the study of family resource management, identifying family needs, understanding resources available to families in differing socioeconomic circumstances, evaluating alternatives and making choices, and implementing and evaluating decisions.
