& Francis Publishing

With contributions from the leading experts on relationships, this book covers important issues, such as love as self-expansion, equity in maintaining close relationships, commitment, social support, self-verification, and minding the relationship. The end result is a comprehensive account of the reasons why close relationships are or are not maintained and the manner in which these principles can be applied to current social issues and clinical interventions.

Divided into two sections, Part I describes models developed to characterize how relationships are maintained over time, accounts of specific mechanisms at work in close relationships, and conceptualizations of the maintenance and enhancement of close relationships using existing theoretical paradigms. Part II addresses contemporary social issues, as well as clinical applications.

Close Romantic Relationships will appeal to students, researchers, and professionals due to its broad sampling of theory and research on relationship maintenance and enhancement.

Two kinds of studies are brought together in this collection, laying emphasis to either the transforming institution or the transforming individual as the basis for achieving excellence in education. The 13 contributors teach education in the US and Canada: Ferrari, who contributes two essays and co-authors a third, is at the U. of Toronto. Among the topics are theory of academic self-regulation, the influence of cultural context, the overriding importance of practice versus innate ability to learn, theories of expert knowledge, and techniques of presenting evidence in the emergence of neurosurgery.
