9780805856682: The Handbook of Sexuality in Close Relationships

Although sexuality is an integral part of close romantic relationships, research linking these two constructs has been less systematic than other areas pertaining to close relationships. To date, researchers in communication, sociology, family studies, psychology, and psychiatry, have made significant advances in both of these fields. The editors' goal is to integrate this research into one volume. They bring together major scholars from the diversity of fields working on close relationship topics to examine past contributions and new directions in sexuality. The emphasis is on theoretical integration and stimulation, methodological rigor, and critical analysis. This volume explores:
*early sexual experiences and their impact on late life sexuality;
*how life's stresses impact sexuality and satisfaction with closeness;
*the affect of postpartum depression on sexuality; and
*the relationship between control, power, anger, as well as revenge and sexual processes in couples.

The Handbook of Sexuality in Close Relationships is intended for students and researchers in the disciplines of social, clinical, developmental, and health psychology; family studies; counseling; and interpersonal, family, and health communication. An excellent reference in advanced courses in close relationships taught in psychology, communications, sociology, anthropology, and family studies, the material in Part V will also appeal to clinical psychologists, health professionals, and policymakers.

Review:

"Comprising 23 chapters written by some 50 authors in a variety of academic areas, this interdisciplinary handbook summarizes the knowledge now available on the topic. The result is a volume that makes a significant contribution to the understanding of close relationships....no other single book brings together such a vast amount of knowledge. Highly recommended."
CHOICE

"One positive feature of the book is the presentation of a cross-cultural perspective on various components of sex and love....the book's chapters reflect much more than merely the personal views of the chapter authors. This volume would be useful in teaching some classes. It could be used as a primary text for graduate classes...and could also be used in advanced-level undergraduate classes."
PsycCRITIQUES

"It is a valuable source of information for ministers, teachers, and clinicians working in the areas of human sexuality and close relationships. The Handbook is clearly destined to become a significant reference text and useful resource for those interested, yet not well versed, in the research literature on sexuality in close relationships. This well-edited collection is a commendable addition and important contribution to both the clinical and the research literature." 

Family Ministry

"This is a handbook that any scholar interested in close relationships and sexuality should add to his or her personal library. It reviews what psychologists, sociologists, communication researchers, family studies experts, and psychiatrists (as well as scholars from a wealth of other disciplines) have discovered about sexuality in various kinds of close, intimate relationships, at various stages in a person's life cycle, and in various settings. The Handbook is indeed a valuable contribution to the field."
Archives of Sexual Behavior

"A key strength of the volume is the comprehensive coverage that authors give to their topics....the entire volume strives to weave in issues of diversity....is well suited for professionals interested in couple issues or who work with couples in the area of sexuality."
Journal of Couple & Relationship Therapy

"I know of no other book that brings together in a single source as much information pertaining to sexuality in the context of close relationships."
Mark Fine, Ph.D.
University of Missouri-Columbia
