Publication Type: Work in Progress
Authors: Cynthia García Coll, Ph.D., Robin Cook-Nobles, Ed.D., Janet L. Surrey, Ph.D.
By placing cultural diversity at the core of relational theory, the basic concepts, language, and applications of the theory are enlarged and reshaped. The major constructs of relational theory are examined as to their relevance to psychological growth and development in other cultures. Future directions are suggested for theory and practice in the evolution of relational theory.
