Intimate Relationships covers both classic and current material in a concise yet thorough and rigorous manner. Chapters range from attraction to love, attachment to jealousy, sexuality to conflict—all written in a warm, personal, and engaging voice. Topics are viewed from an interdisciplinary perspective firmly grounded in research. Examples and stories from everyday life lead into each chapter to stir a student’s engagement with the material, and critical thinking prompts throughout the text aid his or her reflection on the issues and theories presented. Each chapter is organized around major relationship issues and relevant theories, in addition to a critical evaluation of the research. When appropriate, the authors discuss and evaluate popular ideas about intimate relationships in the context of scientific research. This Third Edition has been thoroughly updated and revised to include the latest findings and topics in relationship science, including the role of the Internet in today’s relationships. Students will benefit from a revised chapter on sexuality that reflects current views on sexual orientation and sexual pathways, as well as a forward-looking chapter on the evolution and diversity of relationships in the 21st century. To support student learning, the new edition includes flashcards, learning objectives, and outlines for each chapter.

This influential book provides an innovative framework for understanding and treating intimate partner violence. Integrating a variety of theoretical and empirical perspectives, Donald G. Dutton demonstrates that male abusiveness is more than just a learned pattern of behavior--it is the outgrowth of a particular personality configuration. He illuminates the development of the abusive personality from early childhood to adulthood and presents an evidence-based treatment approach designed to meet this population's unique needs. The second edition features two new chapters on the neurobiological roots of abusive behavior and the development of abusiveness in females.

Sexualität, Liebe und Erotik in modernen Gesellschaften

Author: Anthony Giddens

Publisher: S. Fischer Verlag

ISBN: 3105610855

Category: Social Science

Page: 220

View: 8085

Seit der »sexuellen Revolution« der siebziger Jahre ist das Thema Sexualität in aller Munde. Der Feminismus und das Coming-Out der Homosexuellen haben die tradierten Geschlechterrollen ebenso in Frage gestellt wie die sexuelle Moral. Trotzdem gelten Sex, Liebe und Erotik immer noch als ausschließlich private Bereiche. Der Wandel der Intimität, so zeigt Giddens, betrifft aber ebenso wie unsere ganz persönlichen Beziehungskrisen die Demokratie unserer modernen Gesellschaften. Dieser Wandel geht nicht etwa, wie Konservative behaupten, in die Richtung immer größerer Permissivität und ungehemmten Sex mit möglichst vielen Partnern. Vielmehr entwickeln sich unsere Liebesbeziehungen, Freundschaften und Eltern-Kind-Beziehungen hin zu mehr Partnerschaft und Gegenseitigkeit. »Demokratie«, dafür plädiert Giddens’ umfassende Analyse, ist daher nicht nur eine politische Forderung, sondern ein Schlüsselbegriff für die neue Partnerschaftlichkeit im privaten Leben.

This advanced textbook covers issues of family ties and aging broadly, the goal being to provide an integrated and thorough representation of what we know from the current research. Whereas books on families and aging have traditionally focused on ties to a spouse and to children and grandchildren, Family Ties & Aging is more extensive and more reflective of contemporary society. The text includes groups and relationships that typically receive short shrift, exploring such neglected populations as single, divorced, and childless older people and their family relationships, as well as sibling relationships among the elderly, live-in partnerships not formalized by marriage, and the kinds of family ties forged by gay and lesbian persons over the life course. The book weaves the vast range of information we now have about the many facets of family relationships and aging into a critical, comprehensive, and integrated whole.

A Psychoanalytic Perspective

How can one overcome deeply-held resentment so as to resume or establish a bond with a traumatizing person, mindful that the experience of the self is rooted in the very intimate relationships from which such trauma arose? This book centres on the challenge of forgiveness and recovery from trauma in intimate relationships as viewed psychodynamically in the clinical context.Traumas inflicted by intimates, especially by parents, differ from transgressions and betrayals-however legitimately traumatizing-committed in less psychically-rooted relationships. While some betrayals are in fact not forgivable, what is at issue when parents or other intimates betray is the inevitable yearning for reunion: a wish whose potential fulfillment raises the spectre of re-traumatization and humiliation and is thus fraught with risk.Dr Siassi focuses on the analytic situation as the rightful arena for true forgiveness; one in which the ongoing process of translating experience into words and creating meaning through narrative-often in the transference-allows a victim's wish (as opposed to his/her will) to re-establish a meaningful bond with the offender, to unfold. Dr Siassi argues that this transformative process, first of letting go of resentment, and second of reestablishing a bond that is not superficial with the intimate other, is precisely what allows individuals to transcend the past without erasing it, freeing themselves to fully engage with their world in the present. This is what is meant simply by forgiveness, a formidable challenge for psychoanalytic work.
