In this Second Edition, the author continues to explore both the larger context surrounding families and stress and the inner context, which includes perceptions and meanings. The author emphasizes the need for a more general contextual model of family stress and crises than other models. The goal is to provide a framework for students and professionals engaged in helping families learn how to manage their stress.

She received her Ph.D. in Child Development and Family Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she subsequently taught for many years. In 1981, she joined the Department of Family Social Science at the University of Minnesota, where she is now Professor and Clinical Supervisor in the doctoral training program in marriage and family therapy. She was appointed Visiting Professor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School, 1995-96. Dr. Boss is a past-president of the National Council on Family Relations and is a past-president of the Groves conference on Marriage and the Family.
