Kinship and Social Organization - An Interactive Tutorial "Over the past several years, the construction and interpretation of ethnographic texts have received a good deal of critical attention. Among other problems, the linear sequencing of cultural representations imposes limitations on the translation of multifaceted meaning systems and on the presentation of data from a variety of interpretive perspectives. The emergence of computer mediated authoring systems, and especially of hypertext, has introduced a means of freeing description and analysis from the narrow strictures of the printed page and offers many new modes of ethnographic writing, which we are only beginning to explore. This presentation focuses on the basic and relatively modest task of applying hypertext design principles to kinship instruction in a World Wide Web based tutorial."

We help parents find the information and support they need to take care of themselves and protect the children from adult conflicts and problems. Family problems include: custody/visitation disputes; domestic violence; child abuse; and parental substance abuse or mental illness. We are committed to reducing harm to self and others in this generation and the next."
