Synthesizing Social and Clinical Approaches to Relationships and Health

Synthesizing Social and Clinical Approaches to Relationships and Health

(p.275) Chapter 12 Synthesizing Social and Clinical Approaches to Relationships and Health
Interpersonal Relationships and Health

Susan C. South

Oxford University Press

The chapters in this book include work from researchers using different theories, methods, and approaches to explore varied aspects of interpersonal relationships and health. As has been seen from the different chapters throughout this book, researchers have crossed traditional boundaries to use the theories, methods, and approaches of not only social and clinical psychology but also from genetics, immunology, endocrinology, and other fields. This final, synthesizing chapter takes a step back to present five cross-cutting themes that emerge across the chapters: (1) the importance of the quantity and quality of social relationships; (2) the changing demographics of interpersonal relationships, particularly in the United States; (3) the importance of multiple and varied methods; (4) using theory to guide study of mechanisms; and (5) the ultimate endgame of intervention and prevention.
