Week 7 – Assignment: Applying Family Life Cycle Theory: Book Review



To complete this week’s assignment, write a book review as if you were submitting this review to the Journal of Marriage and Family Therapy (JMFT). To become familiar with standards and expectations of this type of submission at the JMFT, go to the publication record page for the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy (the link is available in the Week 7 Books and Resources). Once on the record page, click the link to “Search within this publication” located in the upper left corner of the page. The name of the journal should be auto-populated in the top search box. Leave this alone; you may add a search term to the second line if you wish. Next, scroll down on your screen until you see the limiter for Document Type. Select Book Review. Then, click Search.

In addition, you are welcome to consult the following book list to have a better idea of examples of development related books:
