Handbook of personal relationships : theory, research, and interventions( Book )

30 editions published between 1988 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first and only comprehensive volume in a field that has grown exponentially in the last ten years. The book is organized across disciplines to reflect the nature of the field and has a broad range of appeal to a variety of teachers and researchers in those widely ranging disciplines. The "Handbook" is therefore divided into sections that reflect and describe the inputs of the different disciplines: Communication; Community and Clinical Psychology; Developmental and Life-cycle Psychology; Social Psychology and Sociology. There is also a section on Conceptualizations and Methods, including a chapter from the tradition of research into personality. The chapters are contributed by experts in the field and individual sections are edited by leading authorities. The "Handbook" thus reflects the view that the field of research in personal relationships is not created nor sustained by the efforts of only one section of the community of scholars alone, but instead feeds and grows from the interaction of many different schools of thought, all of which need to be informed about the work of the others

Relating to others by Steve Duck( Book )

24 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book summarizes the research on relationships, focusing not only on their growth and development but also on their negative aspects, breakdown and repair. The author addresses the use of relationship issues within applied areas such as policing, health care, and the corporate world. He also emphasizes the importance of multidisciplinary studies and the integration of different frameworks and methods, by focusing less on static factors in relationships and more on the matter of process. Finally, he examines the need to contextualize relationship processes and take account of the daily issues of management by relational partners. This second edition of Relating to Others is grounded in a discussion of the contexts for relating, whether cultural, linguistic, or interpersonal. It focuses on a range of relationships, friendship, and types of marriage and is written for students of psychology and the wider social sciences.--From publisher's description

Learning about relationships( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do early experiences influence a person's approach to relationships later in life? What types of experiences have a lasting effect on the way in which a person conducts relationships? Focusing on the behavioral aspects of relationships, Learning About Relationships considers the lasting effects of early-life experiences on later-life relationships. Among the diverse topics explored in this illustrative volume are how parent-child relationships affect a child's feelings of self-worth and the subsequent influences on later relationships, the development of attachment styles in infancy that carry over to adult relationships, how early mother-child experiences affect one's later rearing of children, and how the ideas parents have about relationships affect their relationships with their children. This volume also offers an intriguing analysis of family effects on peer relationships. The final chapter deals with the bullying and victimization that often occurs in school playgrounds and asks the question: Why do some children become bullies and victims? An insightful analysis of the behavioral aspects of relationships, Learning About Relationships presents a compelling catalog of specific ways in which a child's social-relational learning is molded through childhood. -- Publisher description
Confronting relationship challenges by Steve Duck( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Confronting Relationship Challenges moves forward the "Understanding Relationship Processes" series by addressing the difficult side of relationships. This volume, edited by Steve Duck and Julia T. Wood, takes an honest look at what can go wrong with relationships and highlights some of the challenges partners might face while struggling to comprehend their connectedness to each other. Discussion in this volume moves away from any implication that relationships are only good and delightful, because even in the very closest of relationships, pain and suffering are inevitable. The contributing scholars examine the management and tolerance skills required of participants in order to construct meaningful interpretations of themselves, each other, and the relationship while all of the components evolve and interact in continually changing contexts. Issues examined include conflict, enemies, reconfiguring "family" after a divorce, codependency, interpersonal violence, HIV/AIDS, chronic illness, and managing grief over a partner's death. Students and scholars in interpersonal communication, social psychology, clinical/counseling psychology, family studies, social work, and sociology will find this volume to be a valuable resource
