"This volume addresses the construct of dyadic coping between people in intimate relationships. By strict definition, dyadic coping involves both partners and is the interplay between the stress signals of one partner and the coping reactions of the other or a genuine act of common (shared) coping. As the chapters in this volume illustrate, the construct of dyadic coping is nuanced, interpreted differently by the chapter authors to include processes such as everyday communication, interpersonal conflict, joint problem solving, the giving and receiving of emotional support, and dealing with life stressors as a we, not just two Is. The primary aim of this book is to present current approaches on stress and coping in couples, to bring American and European contributions together, and to stimulate further fruitful scientific exchange on this topic of growing importance. Intended primarily for scholars in the field of marital research, stress and coping research, and interpersonal relationships, the book also serves as a useful reader for practitioners. As the idea of dyadic coping is a new and innovative approach in the area of marital therapy, this volume should be of interest to therapists as well"--Preface.
