Gathering leading thinkers in social and clinical psychology, public health, medicine, and sociology, Interpersonal Relationships and Health considers theoretical and empirical issues relevant to understanding the social and clinical psychological mechanisms linking close relationship processes with mental and physical health outcomes. The volume arises out of a recent explosion of interest, across multiple academic and research fields, in the ways that interpersonal relationships affect health and well-being. This volume pulls together a range of scholars who focus on different aspects of relationships and health in order to encourage both collaboration and cross-disciplinary initiatives. This is the first edited volume to pull together noted experts across myriad disciplines whose research is at the intersection of human relationships and health. Topics addressed include key biological processes that influence and, in turn, are influenced by close relationships. Interpersonal Relationships and Health presents research that demonstrates the connections between interpersonal relationships, mental and physical health outcomes, and biophysical markers that figure prominently in the fields of psychoneuroimmunology, endocrinology, and cardiology. In addition, it highlights recent work on marital, family, and social relationships and their interplay with health and well-being. Chapters also address sexual health among young and older adults, as well as clinical intervention efforts that focus on the role of relational factors in influencing health. Each chapter highlights extant theoretical and empirical findings and suggests future avenues for research in this burgeoning area.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is necessary reading for anyone interested in the intersection of close relationships and health, but it would be informative even for relationship science scholars who do not have specific interests in health research as the research and theories presented can inform and expand understanding of basic relationship processes This book does a good job of explaining how interpersonal relationships impact health and well-being. It explores both biological and psychological factors while presenting theories and intervention strategies. It will appeal to a wide audience. * Doody's Notes *
This book serves as a significant contribution to the study of both relationships and health... I would highly recommend Interpersonal Relationships and Health to relationship and health scientists. The book should serve as a motivation to more researchers to integrate relationship science with the study of health behavior. Additionally, it may prompt more collaboration between social and clinical researchers when studying relationships and health. Much can be learned by bridging these two important perspectives on health. * PsycCritiques *
