Description - Handbook of Dynamics in Parent-Child Relations by Leon Kuczynski

This Handbook provides an innovative, interdisciplinary perspective on theory, research and methodology on dynamic processes in parent-child relations. It focuses on cognitive, behavioural and relational processes that govern immediate parent-child interactions and long-term relationships. It considers the nature of change, and what makes such interactions and relationships'work' the way they do. The concern with dynamics represents an emerging research perspective, which complements a long-standing alternative tradition primarily concerned with the products of parenting. This volume focuses on process rather than outcomes, bi-directional influence rather than either parent effects or child effects, transformation in behaviour and relationships in addition to continuity and transmission, and parents and children as agents and actors (what parents and children do and think) rather than as static traits or variables.
