Complex Thought and Adult Intimate Relationships
This chapter summarizes the outline of the book, which describes some underlying cognitive processes that interact with emotional and social factors to support satisfying interactions in close relationships. The book offers a new way of thinking about relationships and may be a rich starting point for research and applications in many settings, for example, in therapy. The information presented explains one way in which complex problem-solving skills can make intimate relationships richer and more satisfying. It develops an extension of the author’s theory and research program on the development and uses of complex postformal thought during adulthood and aging.
