ECUMENICAL MIGRATION CENTRE (EMC). Family RelationshipsSummary: "The study of attachment has yielded important discoveries about parent-child relationships, the internal world, and psychopathology. Yet until quite recently, therapists were largely left to draw their own inferences about the clinical applications of this growing body of knowledge. In this book, David J. Wallin translates attachment theory and research into an innovative framework that grounds adult psychotherapy in the facts of childhood development. Thoughtful, practical, and highly readable, the volume offers fresh insights on the therapist's role as well as clear-cut recommendations for practice." -- Book jacket.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The advent of ageing populations may lead to increased conflict or solidarity in society, and provokes a profound ambivalence both in public and in the private sphere. In a new approach, Biggs and Lowenstein offer a critical examination of Generational Intelligence as one way of addressing these issues. How easy is it to put yourself in the shoes of someone of a different age group? What are the personal, interpersonal and social factors that affect our perceptions of the 'age other'? What are the key issues facing families, workplaces and communities in an ageing society? This book sets out a way of thinking about interpersonal relations based on age, and the question of communication between people of different ages and generations. The book challenges existing orthodoxies for relations between adults of different ages and draws out steps that can be taken to increase understanding between generational groups. The authors outline a series of steps that can be taken to enhance Generational Intelligence, examine existing theories and social issues, and suggest new directions for sustainable relations between generational groups.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Social Support Networks and subjective well-being in Queensland /

by Huang, Xianbi | The Australian Sociological Association.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. Social Causes, Private Lives (2010 : North Ryde, N.S.W.) Bibliography : p. 13Summary: This paper examines discussion networks (social support networks with whom people can discuss problems), perceived social support and their associations with subjective social well-being in Queensland, Australia. Data from the Living in Queensland survey in 2008 are drawn on for empirical analysis. Main findings include: (1) Queensland people have larger discussion networks than reported in US research (comparable references are absent in previous Australian studies). (2) Respondents‟ sociodemographic characteristics are significantly associated with the size of discussion networks and the purpose of using discussion networks. (3) Role relations are linked to different kinds of social support in different domains. Kin play an extensive role in providing various social supports. (4) The use of discussion networks and the sources of perceived social support have significant associations with life satisfaction but the size of discussion networks does not. These results indicate that in Queensland kin remain the most essential providers of perceived social support and personal networks affect subjective well-being. Although the research is exploratory, it produces new empirical evidence to enrich Australia‟s social network studies. Practically it has policy implications in terms of issues of social cohesion and community engagement.Availability: (1)
