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 ...

Behavioral Genetic Contributions to Understanding Dynamic Processes in Parent-Child Relationships
Behavioral genetic contributions to understanding dynamic processes in parent-child relationships
Thomas G.O'Connor

Agoal of this volume is to improve the goodness of fit between the conceptualization and the measurement and analysis of parent-child relationships in both research and applied settings. Where does behavioral genetics fit into this process, if at all? A central premise of this chapter is that findings from behavioral genetics studies have provided important input into our understanding of mechanisms involved in parent-child relationships and their effects on children's psychological development. Continued input from behavioral genetic methods is, therefore, likely to lead to further progress in understanding dynamics of parent-child relationships. Nevertheless, rudimentary problems persist in bringing together behavioral genetics and dynamic models of ...
