Disclosure Processes in Children and Adolescents (Cambridge Studies in Social & Emotional Development)by Ken J. Rotenberg
Synopses & Reviews
To be known and to know others are essential aspects of social interaction. Disclosing personal information and perceiving it in others are all aspects of an individual's experience. Many problems at the forefront of our times--such as divorce, AIDS, rape, and child abuse--challenge our understanding of what should and should not be told. This timely volume presents the most recent developments in the analysis of disclosure processes. It brings together issues as diverse as loneliness, moral development, family therapy, and child abuse into a substantive whole that will prove an invaluable contribution to the field.
To be known, and to know others, is critical to all social relationships. This topic of 'disclosure processes' not only pertains to people's disclosure of daily thoughts and emotions, but to their disclosure of many controversial problems in contemporary society, such as divorce, AIDS and sexual abuse. The bulk of research has focused on disclosure processes in adults and relatively little attention has been given to that phenomena in children and adolescents. The collection of chapters in this book redresses the balance by systematically examining disclosure processes in children and adolescents.
This timely volume presents developments in the analysis of disclosure processes. It brings together issues as diverse as loneliness, moral development and child abuse into a substantive whole which will prove a mighty contribution to the field.
Disclosure Processes in Children and Adolescents brings together recent research on this little-tapped field.
