The study of personal relationships has proliferated as an interdisciplinary social science field. In this volume, leading authority Steve Duck brings the reader up to date on basic concepts and research findings on all aspects of personal relationships. The book discusses how children learn key relationship skills and how adult relationships start, develop, and are sustained, including friendship, romance, and heterosexual and same-sex partnerships. Coverage of clinical and social policy implications of the research gives the book a practical edge. This accessible, engaging book contains much of value for students of relationships, communication studies, and psychology.
