Validation of a new assessment of hostile attribution bias in romantic relationships: The Hostile Attributions in Romantic Relationships Test
Wiley Online Library | Journal of Marital and Family Therapy
by Danyang Li, Benjamin Coker, Angela C. Rowe
6d ago
Abstract While hostile attributional bias (a tendency to interpret others' behaviors as intentionally hostile) is associated with negative outcomes in romantic relationships, no measure has been developed specifically for this context. Here, we describe the development and validation of a self-report questionnaire across three studies, named Hostile Attribution in Romantic Relationships Test. Study 1 introduces the development and preliminary validation (N = 152). Study 2 tests the validity and test–retest stability of the modified version revised based on findings in Study 1 (N = 151).

Attachment as an intermediary variable between childhood maltreatment and perceived partner responsiveness in adolescents and young adults
Wiley Online Library | Journal of Marital and Family Therapy
by Carolyne Gosselin, Marie‐Ève Daspe, Audrey Brassard, Yvan Lussier, Marie‐Pier Vaillancourt‐Morel
1M ago
Abstract Cumulative childhood maltreatment (CCM) is associated with relationship difficulties including lower perceived partner responsiveness (PPR)—the degree of feeling cared for, understood, and validated by a person's partner. Attachment theory is understood via its representations of self and others and could offer a better understanding of how CCM effects continue into adulthood and affect PPR. We examined whether CCM is related to PPR via attachment in French-speaking adolescents and young adults. A sample of 427 individuals in a romantic relationship and another sample of 159 couples c ..read more

Wiley Online Library | Journal of Marital and Family Therapy
by Cheolwoo Park, Victor W. Harris, Kate Fogarty

The current study aimed to examine a hypothesized model underlying the association between mindfulness and relationship quality, while investigating the roles of individuals' level of awareness and application of care in a romantic relationship among 199 adult participants in a southeastern region of the United States. Structural equation modeling (SEM) and path analysis were executed to examine the ..read more

An attachment perspective on couple interaction: Helping couples signal needs clearly and respond appropriately
Wiley Online Library | Journal of Marital and Family Therapy
by Ryan B. Seedall, Karen S. Wampler
2M ago
Abstract Attachment theory provides some important insights into couple relationships, including highlighting the importance of communicating one's needs clearly while also having a partner who is properly attuned and appropriately responsive to those needs. The purpose of this study was to provide an initial empirical examination of the signal-response dynamic. More specifically, we used data from 63 couples to examine the efficacy (in terms of psychophysiological arousal and feelings toward their partner) of a micro-intervention designed to help couples improve their signaling and ..read more
