Wahler, Werner and Smith, Egeland, Breitenbycher and Rosenberg, Deborah Belle, Paul Freire, Reuben Hill. Hills’s theory is: that without social supports and hope, the stresses of economic despair resulted in family crises. These include illness, accidents, violence and child abuse, depression and suicide, divorce and desertion, etc. If a family had social networks of support within the family, across the extended family and within the wider community AND also a positive perception of optimism, they would succeed despite their experiences of job loss and financial strain.
