A series of debates.
What is the future for the family? The extended family was once the basic unit of economic survival; this century has brought the nuclear family - but now that structure is also being challenged. The single-parent family and other groupings are increasing, but are they emotionally and morally satisfactory? Is it time to redefine the family? Is the disintegration of the family producing a generation of neglected, abused and disruptive children?
The discussion is chaired by Rabbi Julia Neuberger with Louis Blom-Cooper , QC, chairman of the enquiries into the deaths of Jasmine Beckford and Kimberly Carlile ; Virginia Bottomley, jp, mp and former social worker; Dr Brian Lask , consultant psychiatrist at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children; and Jean
La Fontaine, president of the Royal Anthropological
Institute, who is currently studying child abuse in Britain.
