This volume, like Terman's, is based on case studies. Our studies have been collected since 1925 at the consultation center conducted in the Department of Child Care and Training at the University of Cincinnati. The total number of cases who have brought their problems to the center is 4,206. In general the couples were relatively well adjusted. The problems which they brought in were minor problems of discipline, quarrels of a not too serious nature between the parents and between the parents and their children, and general complaints about the unsatisfactoriness of marriage and family life under modern conditions, complaints about in-laws and requests for advice about changing personality characteristics which had become too wearing. Only a few cases were serious enough to require advice from the court referee. Many were actually problems of educational adjustment. This volume is intended for use by college students interested in the study of home and family life from a psychological point of view. It should be of particular interest to students of home economics"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved).
