This series on personal relationships from Lawrence Erlbaum Associates is intended to review the progress in the academic work on relationships in respect to a broad array of issues and does so in an accessible manner that also illustrates its practical value. This series will also include books intended to pass on the accumulated scholarship to the next generation of students and to those who deal with relationship issues in the broader world beyond the academy. It will thus comprise not only monographs and other academic resources exemplifying the multidisciplinary nature of this area, but also textbooks suitable for use in the growing numbers of courses on relationships.

The series provides a comprehensive and current survey of theory and research in personal relationships through the careful analysis of the problems encountered, and solved, yet it also considers the systematic application of that work in a practical context. These resources are intended to be not only comprehensive assessments of progress on particular topics, but also significant influences on the future directions and development of the study of personal relationships. Although each volume is focused and centered, authors attempt to place the respective topics in the broader context of other research on relationships and within a range of wider disciplinary traditions. The series thus not only offers incisive and forward-looking reviews, but also demonstrates the broader theoretical implications of relationships for the range of disciplines from which the research originates.

Series volumes include original studies, reviews of relevant theory and research, and new theories oriented toward the understanding of personal relationships both in themselves and within the context of broader theories of family process, social psychology, and communication. Reflecting the diverse composition of personal relationship study, readers in numerous disciplines—social psychology, communication, sociology, family studies, developmental psychology, clinical psychology, personality, counseling, women's studies, gerontology, and others—will find valuable and insightful perspectives in the series.

For such people as nurses, the police, teachers, therapists, lawyers, drug and alcohol counselors, marital counselors, and those who take care of the elderly, a number of issues routinely arise concerning the ways in which relationships affect the people whom they
