The Truth About Twins A new book by a prominent twin researcher debunks many popular myths and makes a strong case for how all of us can benefit from studies of identical pairs.

This handbook The psychology of twins book parents of twins and multiples was first written by Dr. Collier in the mids when his twins were younger.

Over the years, it has become known as one of the "standard guides" in the field. It is grounded in the real world of parenting, full of practical insights and advice, because Dr. Collier was "in the soup" himself/5. This conclusion, I think, was a shot at Dr. Nancy Segal's book, Entwined Lives, (which is still the best twin book around) and is probably aimed at creating a professional separation from other twin experts.

Entwined Lives goes into great detail about likeness factors of twins, both fraternal and identical, normal siblings and by:   For example, it does adresses jealousy between twins, but not the reasons The psychology of twins book it.

Also, the book is dated. I knew when I bought it, but thought it wouldn't matter much since the phicology science wouldn't have changed. It turned out to be a book about some experiences of the author as a father of twins, and as a practitioner back then.3/5(3).

Information on the special needs and natures of twins and multiples is often difficult for professionals to obtain. Twin and Triplet Psychology fills this gap, helping professionals to be better-equipped to offer advice to parents and twins alike.

Examining the psychology of twinship throughout the lifespan, the book includes chapters on: * twins in-utero temperament development and inter-twin /5(2). Twins share everything from the in-utero environment to parents, and birthdate to school settings.

All of which makes them valuable to study. Close attention has been paid to identical twins. The vibe is a mix of summer camp, family reunion, small-town carnival, and — because the twins are encouraged to dress in costume (this year’s theme is space) — a comic book convention.

Monozygotic (identical) twins share all of their genes, while dizygotic (fraternal) twins share only about 50 percent of them. So, if a researcher compares the similarity between sets of identical twins to the similarity between sets of fraternal twins for a particular trait, then any excess likeness between the identical twins should be due to.

This book attempts to fill the gap of knowledge, in theory and practice, about psychological issues pertaining to multiple-birth families. In the first chapter, the author describes the psychology of twin and triplet relationships and gives insights into how it feels to be a twin.

This book examines human psychology and behavior through the lens of modern evolutionary psychology. ‘Evolutionary Psychology’ provides people with the conceptual tools of evolutionary psychology, and applies them to empirical research on the human mind.
