Researchers have questioned the dilemma of looking the family as a casual social group or as an organization that works and can be measured with the same constructs to estimate labor organizations (Brotheridge, M. and Lee, R. [2006]). In New Developments in Psychology Research, analyzing the congruence between the performance of work organizations and family functioning, the researchers assess two instruments; Beavers Self-Report Family Inventory and Work Environment Scales.

The next chapter proposes an innovative research method, Implicit Symbolic Meanings in Online Content, which allows for the analysis of big data according to a mixed approach, taking into account both quantitative and qualitative information and integrating computer science techniques with psychological insights.

In the penultimate chapter, recent research on psychosis is examined to understand its relationship to suicide risk. In addition, data is presented to explore the factors involved in the death of 104 adults by suicide.

In the closing chapter, integrated care is defined and explained. The necessary competencies and steps for proper workforce development are addressed, and recommendations for securing the place of clinical child/pediatric psychology in integrated health care settings are delineated.
