Author Biography

Arlene Skolnick, Ph.D., is a Visiting Scholar at the sociology department at New York University, and a consultant to the Families and Work Institute. For many years she was a member of the research staff at the Institute of Human Development, at the University of California, Berkeley, where she worked on the Berkeley Longitudinal Studies, examining the emotional lives and marriages of study members as they evolved from childhood to middle age. More recently, Professor Skolnick has been studying the sources and impact of job stress on the families of police officers. She has also taken part in several interdisciplinary projects dealing with social science, law and family policy. In recent years, she helped to organize a monthly Family Policy Seminar at Berkeley, and co-edited the book that grew out of the seminar: All Our Families: New Policies for a New Century. Professor Skolnick has published a number of other books and articles on marriage and the family, including Family in Transition and Embattled Paradise: The American Family in an Age of Uncertainty. She is currently at work on a book entitled The Unfinished Family: The Future of Love and Work.
