This introductory textbook is for students who are interested in learning about and establishing healthy marriage, family, and intimate relationships. With divorce rates high and relationships fragile, books and courses are needed that help students address important issues regarding relationships. The readers of this text examine many important and relevant issues through the lens of theory and research and do so using a written format that is readable, understandable, and easy to apply to oneís life. It was written so that each chapter has information that readers will find helpful as they attempt to establish and maintain meaningful, healthy relationships. There are questions throughout each chapter that help readers focus not only on the material but also on how the material relates to their present and past relationship and family situations. The text provides material on the research of John Gottman, the object relations theory of Harville Hendrix, the solution- focused approach of Michele Weiner-Davis, and the PREP approach to conflict management of Markman, Stanley, and Blumberg. These and other topics discussed are very relevant to studentsí concerns and are addressed in greater depth than found in most other texts. The emphasis is not just on couple relationships but also on family relationships. Therefore, in this book there is extensive coverage of family systems theory and the influence of family rules and family structure on the development of families. There is also material on how change produces transitions in family life that must be assimilated into the family structureófor example, when a couple has their first child. Thus, both couple and family issues are addressed throughout the book. For instructors who want to focus their courses on marriage, family, and intimate relationships, this book would be an ideal choice.

How couples can restore trust and repair love relationships Even the strongest relationship can be eroded by common, everyday breaches of trust. A small lie about a purchase, a cover-up for a forgotten birthday--each takes a bite out of trust. Over time, intimate confidences are weakened and the foundation of trust begins to crumble. It is Dr. Block's firm belief that when couples feel emotionally safe with each other, their relationship is more passionate, open, uninhibited, and sexually alive. Filled with inspiring case studies from Dr. Block's private practice, this book offers couples an innovative, solution-oriented approach to restoring trust and repairing love relationships shattered or eroded by betrayal. Includes chapters covering: Recognizing the Signs of Trust . . . and Mistrust Dance Away Lovers: The Trust-Mistrust Relationship Jealousy, Lover's Hell The Frontier of Trust: Sexual Fidelity Restoring Trust "Through a spirited, imaginative exploration of love relationships, Block develops a useful roadmap for those who want their relationship to be meaningful." --Daniel Acaoz, founder, American Journal of Family Therapy

Wandel der Intimit t

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.
