Conflict in Relationships

As stress builds, the amount of conflict in a person's important relationships often increases. Some people tend to have frequent conflictual problems in their relationships or a tendency to be involved in emotionally upsetting relationships.


Treatment resulted in less conflict in relationships.​​

On admission, participants reported a clinically significant level of relationship conflict (mean = 83.86, SD 18.75). After initial treatment phase, conflict was decreased to an above average level (mean = 63.32, SD 15.77). Above 70 is considered clinically significant. Average level of relationship conflict in the general population is measured at T=50.

Relationship Conflict is measured with the Interpersonal Conflict scale of John Briere's IASC (2000).
