Intimate relationships: development, dynamics, and deterioration
Perlman and Duck's book focuses on the development of intimate relationships. It has been organized around the chronology of a relationship, and deals conceptually with new developments such as the acknowledgement of both positive forces and conflict processes; greater attention to stages and processes; and areas of concern to both researchers and practitioners. The contributors provide new statements on work at the forefront of the field and provide fresh suggestions for interventions.
