Relationships play a central part in people's lives, and a number of exciting interdisciplinary perspectives have recently emerged to shed new light on what it means to be in a relationship with another human being. This volume offers an authoritative yet accessible examination of a wide variety of these perspectives, drawing from a broader than usual range of material and including considerable reference to clinical contexts and case-studies.
Overall, this book provides an introduction to the cutting edge of research about human relationships and interactions, engaging readers in a debate central not only to academic researchers and clinicans but to their own lives.
This is the course text for The Open University course Social Psychology: Personal Lives, Social Worlds (D317).
