Highlighting exciting research and the latest societal trends, Intimate Relationships provides the most engaging and contemporary introduction to the field.
Bradbury and Karney’s Intimate Relationships introduces students to the study of intimate relationships while using a critical thinking approach that encourages them to interact with what they read. Foundational topics like theoretical perspectives, cultural influences, gender, and sexuality are balanced with coverage of nontraditional relationships, cohabitation, couples therapies, divorce, and relationships across the lifespan. Current trends that affect students directly, from hooking up to social networking web sites and internet dating also make this the most contemporary text available.
