Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Intimate Relationships, First Edition!

Intimate Relationships provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the science behind relationships using a modern approach. Award-winning teacher and author Wind Goodfriend integrates coverage of family and friendship relationships in context with research methods, open science, theories, and romantic relationships so that readers can learn about all types of relationships and their interactions, including conflict and the dark side of relationships. The text supports today's students by frequently applying relationship theories to examples that can be found in popular culture, helping students see how psychology can apply to the world that surrounds them.
