The Impact of Work Patterns Upon Family Development

pp. 312—318

ABSTRACT: There is scarcely any aspect of life which isn't influenced by employment, or the lack of it.This article describes the significant ways in which work patterns impact upon family development. Several aspects of work are described, including the changing nature of family employment patterns; the effects of women’s employment on marriage; contemporary modifications of work scheduling; and the effects of employment patterns on children. Several activities are suggested for school psychologists to help parents to help their children in the career development process.
