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, decreasing from an average of extreme conflict to an above average leave.
On admission, participants reported a clinically significant level of relationship conflict (mean = 85.69, SD 20.91). After initial treatment phase, conflict was decreased to an above average level (mean = 60.79, SD 14.81). 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).
