9780805842852: Handbook of Closeness and Intimacy

This handbook brings together the latest thinking on the scientific study of closeness and intimacy from some of the most active and widely recognized relationship scholars in social and clinical psychology, communication studies, and related disciplines. Each contributing author defines their understanding of the meaning of closeness and intimacy; summarizes existing research and provides an overview of a theoretical framework; presents new ideas, applications, and previously unstated theoretical connections; and provides cross-references to other chapters to further integrate the material.

The Handbook of Closeness and Intimacy will be of interest to researchers, practitioners, and students from social, clinical, and developmental psychology; family studies; counseling; and communication.

About the Author:

Dr. Debra J. Mashek is a member of the research faculty at George Mason University. She received her Ph.D. in Social and Health Psychology from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Her research examines the influence of interpersonal closeness (including community connectednes) on cognitive self-processing, relationship satisfaction, and psychological adjustment.
Dr. Arthur Aron is Professor of Psychology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He has published widely on relationships, has been awarded major grants for the study of relationships, and is best known for his work on the cognitive structure of closeness. He recently completed a six-year term as Associate Editor of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

Review:

"Mashek and Aron have assembled a book that summarizes the central relationship processes of closeness and intimacy. Not only do the contributors offer an overview of a theoretical framework on closeness and intimacy, each chapter contains a plethora of new ideas, new applications, and previously unstated theoretical conntections....highly recommended to anyone interested in the topic."
Metapsychology

"... a rich compendium with a wealth of fresh insights, new theoretical connections, and practical implications. I wholeheartedly recommend it...a superb set of contributors, a veritable who's who of the area..."
Daniel Perlman, Ph.D.
University of British Columbia, Canada

"...a 'must have' volume in most researchers' libraries and useful for graduate classes..."
Sandra Petronio, Ph.D.
Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis

"This work serves not only as an authoritative reference for researchers in social and clinical psychology, but also as a treasure trove of useful facts for relationship therapists."
Neal Roese, Ph.D.
Department of Psychology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

"I personally would purchase it, would advise my colleagues and library to do so, and if I were teaching a graduate seminar on closeness and intimacy, I would adopt the handbook."
Dr. Mark Fine
University of Missouri-Columbia
