Summary Conflict is a natural, even inevitable, aspect of most ongoing close relationships - a given. What distinguishes most successful relationships from unsuccessful ones is not the absence of conflict, but how conflict is managed. Relationship Conflict skillfully portrays the different types of conflict that we encounter in our most significant personal relationships: parent-child, friendship, and romantic relationships. The authors capture the essence of current research and theory to shed light on conflict's role in human interaction. Drawing from the findings of multiple disciplines, this volume takes a developmental development look at childhood friendships through to dating and married relationships. The results result is a richer understanding of interpersonal involvement accessible to close relationship researchers and professionals and students in many service-based fields.
