The view contrasts with the literature on adult personal relationships, which tends to view relationships and contexts as bilateral influences.

After a brief preview chapter, the book opens with a chapter by Collins and Repinski that reviews theories and constructs in the field and advances provocative ideas for theory construction and future research. In the next chapter Patricia Noller presents a wide-ranging and engaging review of parent-adolescent relations and adolescent outcomes. …
