    Funkcja prokreacyjna na rozdrożu?
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2011) Gębka, Mikołaj
    The article points to a number of questions related to the procreative role. Of importance to this role and to its condition is the fact that the character of the value that a child has for its parents has changed, from a practical, utilitarian one ("hands for work", "security for old age") towards an autotelic one (fulfilment of one's dreams, satisfaction of one's need for becoming a parent, etc.). This change, combined with advances in medical science, has allowed the weight of the process of procreation to shift from the "quantity" to the "quality" of the offspring.

    Terapia par jako narzędzie przeciwdziałania dysfunkcji rodziny
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2011) Frąckowiak - Sochańska, Monika
    This article is aiming at a presentation and critical analysis of selected concepts of marital therapy. Permanent conflicts between partners influence generalized life quality of every member of a family system (spouses as well as children). According to clinical research results presented in the text, there is a strong link between marital conflicts between parents and depression, eating disorders, and behavioral disorders among children and youngsters. That is why marital therapy can be considered to be a method of prevention of above mentioned disorders. The author compares seven schools of marital therapy: psychodynamic, behavioral-cognitive, systemic, narrative, process-oriented, rational- educational and values-oriented in order to single out main changes in philosophy of therapy concerning explanations of disorders, roles of therapist and clients as well as methods of work.

    Rejestrowane związki osób tej samej płci we współczesnej Europie
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2011) Szukalski, Piotr
    The analyses presented in this article yield the conclusion that, in time, same-sex relationships undergo assimilation to heterosexual relationships. Perhaps, the term assimilation should be replaced with another, disappearance of differences, as it appears that people in same-sex relationships have an ideal of family life similar to the one widely-found in all of the society. The differences are mainly the result of the adoption of a different division of family roles, when compared to the traditional one, and of meeting a different set of expectations from the environment.

    Udział środowiska rodzinnego w procesie rozwoju pedofilii
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2011) Beisert, Maria
    Pedophilia is a complicated phenomenon that refers to a sexual relation between an adult and a child. In Poland it is the crime on penalty under article 200 in the Penal Code. In the presented article the author's own theory is used as the conceptual framework of the empirical research. This theory stems from the Marshall and Barbaree's integrated theory of the etiology of sexual offending that emphasizes the role of offender's family experiences in developing sexual pathology in the future. The conducted research has verified the proposed concept describing the paths of the development of pedophilia and indicating the way early socialization experiences (attachment styles and parental attitudes) contribute to becoming a child's perpetrator. Results have partially confirmed the theoretical models and have given directions for future explorations.
