More About This Title Relationship Science


Relationships are the most important factor affecting life quality and satisfaction.To improve our understanding of this important topic, it is vital to integrate different theories and methodologies. This book brings together researchers from psychology and neighboring disciplines whose work sheds light on the topic of relationships. It focuses on evolutionary, neuroscience, and sociocultural perspectives—three relatively new interdisciplinary approaches at the forefront of relationship science.
Individual chapters present research findings and relate these findings to other disciplinary and theoretical approaches. They consider not only mating or romantic relationships, but also familial relationships, friendships, and other forms of relationship—including those that produce abuse, conflict, and stress. The result is an innovative and comprehensive view of relationship science. Researchers from a wide variety of disciplines as well as practitioners will find the book enlightening.
