Rezensionen

"This informative, well-written, and engaging work explicates the theoretical foundations of emotional security, reviews research on the topic, and presents new findings. The authors' analysis should be taken seriously by all concerned with the well-being of children and families." - Jay Belsky, Birkbeck University of London, UK "Cummings and Davies have done it again! This is a superb book, combining years of programmatic research with keen insights and a constant eye toward practical applications for practitioners and the parents they work with. Marital Conflict and Children is 'must' reading for researchers and practitioners in psychology, family therapy, and associated disciplines, as well as a great text for upper-division undergraduate and graduate classes." - Robert E. Emery, University of Virginia, USA
