ISBN10: 0805838988

Summary: An extensive revision of the 1995 version of Odyssey of the Heart, this new edition thoroughly updates the literature on close relationships. This book reflects the theme of Homer's writing about Odysseus in his 10-year journey home after the Trojan War--it shows how the path of a close relationship resembles an odyssey of the heart--a wandering course filled with hope, disappointment, agony, and ecstasy. Written in a personal, story-telling style, Odyssey weaves exc
erpts of actual relationships with current and classic research to provide a better perspective on our own experiences in light of the principles of relationships. Highlights of its comprehensive coverage include the classic research on personal attraction, dating and meeting others for closeness, and the maintenance and dissolution of relationships. Features new to this edition include: *the latest research and therapeutic techniques on maintaining and enhancing relationships, including intimacy and attachment, love and self-expansion, and seeing virtue in faults;
*a new chapter on the family with recent demographic changes and a look at the ongoing debates about the impact of cohabitation, divorce, and blended families;
*a new and unique chapter on same sex relationships with emerging literature including Lawrence Kurdek's prolific research in this area;
*new chapters on the dark side of relationships including why women stay in abusive relationships and lifespan relationship challenges such as senior citizens search for romance;
*cutting-edge research on such things as young people's causal sexual behavior and Beverly Fehr's work on love and commitment prototypes; and
*a unique final chapter, "Recommendations for Growth" that provides an opportunity for readers to directly apply current research and theory to their own relationships. Odyssey of the Heart is intended as a text for courses or advanced seminars on close and/or interpersonal relationships. Its accessibility and inclusion of many actual experiences will engage the general reader.
