Chapter Three sets the context for understanding how humans development and how families function. It is intended to provide the reader with a backdrop for understanding the discussion in subsequent chapters of the theoretical basis of the book and its analysis of suicide attempts. The core precepts of developmental systems theory, cultural psychology, and family systems and structural theory are presented. Then they are yoked in order to deepen the understanding of the adolescent Latina and her family. Chapter incorporates case studies of both suicidal and non-suicidal girls and their families to further illustrate the meanings of these theories to U.S. Latinos.

Keywords:   developmental systems theory, family systems theory, family structural theory, cultural psychology, culture and ethnicity, socialization
