HDFS  4473  Policy,  Law,  and  Advocacy     1   Notes  from  week  2/2  and  2/4:   Family  Policy  Theories-­‐     *There  are  four  different  camps  of  lenses  one  can  use  when  looking  at  family   policies.  They  give  a  person  a  way  to  evaluate  and  critique  policies.     1.  The  Concerned  Camp   This  camp  is  based  on  the  idea  that…   • The  “family”  has  declined  and  become  less  important  to  society.  Families   would  be  better  off  today  if  things  had  remained  the  same  and  values  hadn’t   changed  over  the  years.   • Key  values:  Parental  commitment,  marital  fidelity,  and  civic  responsibilities   and  involvement.   • The  quality  of  life  is  of  the  upmost  importance.   • They  have  a  more  family  centered  view  as  opposed  to  a  more  individualistic   view.   • The  nuclear  traditional  family  is  the  best  way  to  have  a  family  in  their  view.     2.  The  Sanguine  Camp   This  camp  is  based  on  the  idea  that…   • Change  is  positive  part  of  the  human  experience.   • Families,  including  the  children,  are  strong,  adaptive,  and  resilient  and  can   handle  changes.   • They  believe  that  norms  have  changed  as  have  how  we  care  for  children  and   beliefs  about  how  a  family  is  structured.   • Children  are  cared  for  by  several  people  and  a  variety  of  groups  and  systems.     3.  The  Impatient  Camp   This  camp  is  based  on  the  idea  that…   • Changes  haven’t  been  significant  enough  or  sufficient  to  meet  the  changes   and  challenges  facing  families  today.   • There  is  no  one,  correct  definition  of  the  family.  Families  are  changing  and   becoming  more  diverse  so  our  definition  must  do  the  same.   • They  do  not  believe  that  diverse  and  non-­‐traditional  families  are  valued  or   given  the  support  they  deserve.   • Key  values:  pluralism,  diversity,  and  heterogeneity.     4.  Theory  of  Paradox   This  camp  is  based  on  the  idea  that…   • They  seek  to  recognize  and  value  all  of  the  different  opinions  and   perspectives  people  can  have  about  families.  All  perspectives  are  valid.   • They  would  encourage  us  to  use  all  of  the  pros  from  the  above-­‐mentioned   camps  to  form  policies  about  families.     • They  believe  that  compromise  and  democratic  decision-­‐making  will  be  the   key  for  everyone  to  agree.
