Humans are essentially social beings. As countless novels, films, songs, plays and poems testify, our ultimate happiness and despair is founded in our relationships. Interpersonal Relationships considers such friendships and more intimate relationships in detail, including theories of types of relationships and loves, why we need them, how they are formed, what we get out of them and the stages through which they go. Social and cultural variations are also explored, as well as the effect of relationships on our well-being and happiness. Interpersonal Relationships is tailor-made for the student new to higher-level study. With its helpful textbook features provided to assist in examination and learning techniques, it should interest all introductory psychology and sociology students, as well as those training for the caring services, such as nurses.
