Overview

Combining empirical evidence with indices to measure mattering, Family Matters: The Importance of Mattering to Family in Adolescence explores the inverse relationship between mattering and dysfunctional behavior in adolescence.
• Defines mattering and distinguishes among the three ways that people can matter to others: awareness, importance, and reliance
• Utilizes empirical evidence from a quantitative analyses of data from a nationwide survey 2,004 adolescents to support author's assertions
• Explores the impact of structural and demographic factors such as family structure in developing of a sense of mattering in adolescents.
• Includes helpful indices, including his Mattering Index and Rosenberg's Self-Esteem Index
• Suggests how parents, teachers, and other significant people in the lives of adolescents can work to instill a sense of mattering in those under their care

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I enjoyed reading Family Matters and the first researchfindings drawn from a large sample. The chapters summarizing whatmattering is and how it motivates behavior provide a nice overviewfor uninitiated readers...this book helps highlight a constructthat may be important for family researchers and hopefully willhelp encourage others to consider engaging in research to fill inthe many gaps in our knowledge about mattering." (Journal of FamilyTheory & Review, Autumn 2010)

"This book is recommended for social psychologists,sociologists, psychologists, and social workers. I found it thoughtprovoking and would like to see items on mattering added tolarge-scale surveys. Readers are likely to think of instances ofhow not mattering has mattered in their own lives." (InternationalJournal of Sociology of the family, Autumn 2010)  

“The book isclear, provocative, and well documented.” (CHOICE, February2010)
