Abstract

In this introductory chapter, I will briefly describe each chapter in this volume. These brief descriptions cannot possibly do justice to the richness of the theoretical frameworks and empirical evidence contained therein, but will give the reader some insight into the questions and issues that are addressed. The chapters are divided into Parts I and II on the basis of their relative emphasis on intrapersonal dynamics or interpersonal/contextual concerns. However, this division is necessarily somewhat arbitrary, given that each chapter addresses to some extent both intrapersonal and interpersonal/contextual processes.
