Handbook of Dynamics in Parent-Child Relations provides an innovative, interdisciplinary perspective on theory, research, and methodology of dynamic processes in parent-child relations. Edited by distinguished scholar Leon Kuczynski, this accessible volume is divided into six parts. Part I concerns dyadic processes in parent-child relationships and provides the conceptual grounding for the volume as a whole. Parts II and III examine the agency of the child and the agency of the parent, respectively. Part IV considers dynamics in the parent-child dyad as they are mediated by or impact on various lifespan, cultural, and ecological contexts. Part 5 addresses the methodological implications of adopting a dynamic process view of parent-child relations. Part 6 weighs future directions for theory, research, and practice. Interdisciplinary in scope, Handbook of Dynamics ...

Quantitative Methods for Deductive (Theory-Testing) Research on Parent-Child Dynamics
Quantitative methods for deductive (theory-testing) research on parent-child dynamics
William L.Cook

As the substantive chapters in this book reveal, the dynamic processes of parent-child interaction are believed to be fairly complex. In some cases, our ability to test these beliefs empirically may not be up to the task. It may also be that the process of specifying these complex processes in a manner consistent with a quantitative analysis will show that the problems, although complex, are not as complex as imagined. Since the 1980s, a much-expanded repertoire of quantitative techniques has developed for the study of close personal relationships, including, but not limited to, parent-child relationships. These methods, when combined with clear thinking about the nature of the ...
