The Social Relations Model provides a straightforward conceptual model of the components that make up behaviors in dyads and groups, and it is directly related to specific design requirements and statistical analyses, thereby providing a powerful conceptual and methodological toolbox to analyse behaviors in dyads and groups across the sciences. This book is specifically designed to make this toolbox accessible - beyond interpersonal perception phenomena. It helps identify the relevant phenomena and dynamics surrounding behaviors in dyads and groups, and goes on to assess and analyse them empirically.
Social Relations Modeling of Behavior in Dyads and Groups covers software, interpersonal perception (adult and children), the SRM with roles (e.g. in families), and application to non-human research. Written so the content is accessible to advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers, author Thomas E. Malloy, strives to make inherently abstract material and unusual statistics accessible.
- Captures essential conceptual and methodological topics around the scientific analyses of behaviors in groups and dyads
- Situates the SRM in the history of dyadic research
- Offers detailed guidance on research design and measurement operations
- Organizes models and empirical results into easily read figures and tables
- Demonstrates how SRM variances and covariances can be used as dependent measures in experiments
- Conceptualizes novel phenomena in personality psychology using the SRM

Thomas E. Malloy has conducted research on interpersonal perception, peer perceptions in classrooms, intergroup relations, and reconciliation, individual differences and behavior, cross-cultural psychology, research methodology, and healthy psychology. He is currently funded by RI-INBRE and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study Visual Attention to Faces of in-group and out-group members. Professor Malloy directs the Intergroup Relations Laboratory at Rhode Island College. He works with researchers at the Finnish National Institute of Health and Welfare on the 1987 Finnish Birth Cohort Study, a 25 year longitudinal study of all those born in Finland in 1987. Professor Malloy is collaborating with researchers at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem on the quality of listening in dyadic interactions. He is also collaborating with researchers at the University of Ulster in Ireland on face-to-face dyadic interaction. He has offered methodological workshops at annual meetings of the Association for Psychological Science on Social Relations Modeling of Dyadic Data.
