Exploring how caregivers juggle their responsibilities of work and family, the authors of this volume suggest that dependant care needs to be addressed as a corporate, family and community concern. Drawing from literature as well as from their own extensive research, they present a thorough investigation of the stress factors experienced by workers caught between the frequently conflicting demands of these two roles. Policies, benefits and services reviewed range from approaches that intervene in the caregiving process to those that change the world of work with such alternatives as flexible working hours, child-care facilities and tax credits for dependant care.

Published in cooperation with the Center for Practice Innovations, Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, Case Western Reserve University Recipient of Choice Magazine's 1993 Outstanding Academic Book Award One major consequence of the staggering cocaine epidemic is the increase it has caused in "skipped-generation families"--families in which the middle generation is absent, and grandparents are left to raise their grandchildren. Providing a rich and in-depth look at this phenomenon, Grandmothers as Caregivers focuses on African American women who are raising young grandchildren as a direct consequence of this epidemic. Using a combination of quantitative and qualitative research methods, the authors give voice to the women's stories, and capture the strengths, the courage, the pain, and the insights of these "forgotten caregivers." The book explores multiple dimensions of grandparent caregiving, including the circumstances surrounding the assumption of the new role, the effects of such caregiving on the physical and emotional health of grandparents, the high costs of caregiving from an economic perspective, and the dual standard in government welfare policies that penalize grandparents for being related to the children in their care. The authors also look at grandparent caregiving nationally, describing innovative community interventions and service programs to support grandparent caregivers. A detailed and insightful look at the adverse effects of the cocaine epidemic, Grandmothers as Caregivers will be essential reading for professionals and students of gerontology, social work, family studies, nursing, and sociology. "Enlightened lay persons, as well as professionals and scholars, will benefit from the awareness generated. This is a highly recommended and well-written text with implications for practice and policy further research." --Family & Community Health "This study models thoughtful design, careful scholarship, vivid writing, and cogent recommendations. Spanning traditional fields of social research, women's studies, substance abuse, gerontology, child welfare, and public assistance, the book deserves wide reading. Highly recommended."

"This is the most comprehensive book to-date about the role that families play in caring for adults with mental illness. Unique to this volume is an examination of caregiving roles from an historical perspective as well as from the perspective of various caregiving relationships--parents, adult children, and siblings. Of special importance is Dr. Lefley's delineation of the nature of caregiving throughout the life cycle of the family." Agnes B. Hatfield, Ph.D., University of Maryland at College Park "I find Harriet Lefley's new book Family Caregiving in Mental Illness to be extremely thoughtful and comprehensive. It is all here--family theories and research, caregiving in the context of changes in the family life cycle, coping strategies, cross-cultural issues, advocacy, patient rights, and mental health policy. Dr. Lefley is the expert of experts when it comes to family caregiving in serious mental illness. The book is very readable and accessible to family members, social workers, and policymakers. It represents another big step in Dr. Lefley's courageous effort to bring family issues to public attention." --Richard Tessler, Ph.D. University of Massachusetts Deinstitutionalization suddenly catapults family members into being the primary caregivers for functionally impaired adults who are diagnosed with mental illness. This role as caregiver is one that family members are untrained and unprepared for. In Family Caregiving in Mental Illness, author Harriet Lefley explores the experiences of those giving care for adults with mental illness. She thoughtfully examines the unique characteristics and conceptual models related to mental illness and then surveys the experience of mental illness in the context of the family life cycle and developmental stages of the illness. Family burden, including social stigma; treatment barriers; iatrogenic stress; and the relationship between the patient and caregiver are appraised while the influence on other family members is highlighted. The stages of familial response, specific types of coping strategies, and professional and nonclinical services for families are reviewed, along with positive affects on the family's welfare. Finally, cultural factors affecting family caregiving are discussed in the international context and in terms of ethnic differences within the United States. Also considered are the impact of advocacy movements on caregivers, the legal and ethical barriers to care, alternative models to family caregiving, and the maintenance and growth of consumer-run services. All professionals working with persons with mental illness as well as researchers and students in this area will find Family Caregiving in Mental Illness illuminating and valuable.
