Article
Whereas greater levels of intimacy have been shown to promote couples’ sexual well-being, recent theories suggest that satisfying sex is maintained via the capacity to encourage the partner’s individuality, while remaining intimately connected. Responses to capitalization attempts (i.e., the disclosure of a positive personal event) provide an oppor...
Article
Does talking about loss with a romantic partner have salutary personal and relationship effects? Prior evidence reveals the benefits of emotional disclosure in couple relationships, yet disclosure about loss has been overlooked in research on couple communication. Using a novel communication paradigm with young-adult heterosexual romantic partners...

Despite an increase in research initiatives and prevention campaigns, intimate partner violence (IPV) remains a public health problem that affects many victims worldwide. The current study aims to examine whether psychological distress symptoms (anger, depression, and anxiety) are indirectly related to the perpetration of IPV (physical assault, psy...
Article
Past observational studies highlight meaningful behavioral differences between aggressive and nonaggressive couples during conflict interactions. However, research is needed on how aggressive couples communicate in other, nonconflictual interactional contexts. This study investigates how dating partners' perpetration of physical aggression relates...
Article
Practitioners working with male perpetrators of intimate partner violence (IPV) observe high rates of treatment dropout in their clientele, which can undermine their ability to reduce the occurrence of IPV. Studies have also mostly documented predictors of dropout from group-format IPV treatment programs, but not from individual-format treatment mo...

Un nombre croissant d’études suggèrent que les traumas cumulatifs (TC) affectent négativement les relations amoureuses à l’âge adulte (Peterson, 2018). Cependant, les facteurs qui atténuent la relation entre les TC et la satisfaction conjugale sont méconnus. La sécurité d’attachement (Mikulincer et Shaver, 2003) constitue l’un des facteurs suscepti...

We examined the targets of erotic dreams reported by 470 men and 575 women in a romantic relationship as well as the associations between these targets and measures of couple and sexual life. Over 95% of all participants reported havi...

Many couples transitioning into parenthood are at risk for dyadic adjustment declines. It is therefore important to explore key, theory-driven deterrents of enduring relationships during this period, as well as potential underlying mechanisms. This study examined the relationship between perceived conditional negative regard (i.e. a behavior that t...

Introduction: Some Facebook users have difficulty regulating the amount of time they spend online, and some Facebook features, such as likes, promote habitual use. Theoretically, attachment insecurities could be related to problematic Facebook use, but the findings of past studies were mixed with limited knowledge about potential moderators and med...
Article
Bien que la personnalité exerce une influence sur la satisfaction conjugale, les chercheurs se sont peu intéressés à l’amalgame des traits de personnalité des deux conjoints et à son impact sur la satisfaction. La présente étude vise, d’une part, à déterminer l’existence de profils de couples au sein d’un échantillon de la population clinique et, d...

There is an understudied, meaningful distinction between high frequency of pornography use and the subjective feeling that this behavior is out of control. We examined whether the quality of a couple's relationship and sex life can strengthen or weaken the association between frequency of Internet pornography use and perceived lack of control over...
Article
Objective: Prior studies have documented the potential role of nonoffending parent support in promoting recovery of adult survivors following sexual abuse (SA). However, few studies have distinguished the maternal and paternal role and the mechanisms by which quality of the parent-child relationship might foster more positive outcomes in child vict...

Article
Bien qu’il n’existe pas de typologie définitive des caractéristiques des agresseurs sexuels à l’égard d’enfants, la documentation scientifique révèle la présence de distorsions cognitives et de traits de personnalité impliqués dans l’étiologie et le maintien des comportements sexuels déviants. Ces facteurs étant également associés au risque de réci...

Prior studies have suggested self-blame and sense of guilt as important elements associated with the effects of childhood sexual abuse on adult survivors (Cantón-Cortés, Cantón, Justicia & Cortés, 2011). However, few studies have explored the potential impact of the sense of guilt on outcomes in child victims. This study examines the mediating role...

Evidence suggests a robust association between different types of childhood interpersonal traumas (i.e., sexual abuse, neglect, physical and psychological violence) and depressive symptoms (Briere & Jordan, 2009). Authors suggest that the experience of multiple interpersonal traumas (i.e., cumulative trauma) contributes to a more complex symptomato...

The current study examined the curvilinear association among neuroticism and sexual satisfaction in both partners of couples from a clinical population. The...
Article
Full-text available
Among personality traits, neuroticism has been shown to be the most significant predictor of dyadic adjustment. Despite some propositions arguing that low, as well as high levels of personality traits are maladaptive tendencies, only the negative linear relationship between neuroticism and couple satisfaction has been addressed in past research. Th...
