The Door to the Family Home

(p.1) Introduction
The Psychology of Family Law

Eve M. Brank

NYU Press

Family law can be analogized to a door to the family home representing how the family is sometimes open to more or less government involvement depending on the family situation. Family law is vast and diverse, but well-suited for psychology and law inquiry. Both fields are focused on human behavior and at its core family law is about human behavior. Indeed, no other area of law touches so closely to individuals’ own personal experiences because everyone has direct experience in one way or another with family law. And, those experiences touch on the most intimate and private areas of life.
