Questions related to Interpersonal Relationships
I am currently working on a study for which there are recordings of children and carers engaging in interactive tasks (somewhat ambiguous / challenging tasks designed to elicit the need for collaboration / sensitive parenting). I am interested in whether there are any existing coding systems that could be applied flexibly to this kind of data which could help codify the quality of the caregiver-child relationship / attachment relationship in these dyads. Anything even vaguely relevant would be wonderful to hear about.
Dear colleagues in the filed of psychology and similar disciplines,
Do you know some open call for cross-cultural project regarding post-COVID effects (or what is happening after the 2 years of pandemic) on various aspects of mental health (life satisfaction, stress, anxiety, optimism...), emotional status, interpersonal relationships, risky behavior, conspiracy theories and other beliefs, etc.?
Is there a probability to see this happens without any sensitivity to all three?
I hope to find papers and studies.
I will be conducting a research study to investigate the feasibility and utility of using a digital translation technology in clinical practice in promoting interpersonal relationships, therapeutic communication, patient engagement, and supporting mental health recovery and well-being.
Peplau's Interpersonal Relationships in Nursing will be used as the theoretical framework for the study.
“Stress is a process in which environmental demands tax or exceed the adaptive capacity of an organism resulting in psychological and biological changes that may place persons at risk for disease” – Cohen (1997).
The concept of emotional intelligence is an umbrella term that captures a broad collection of individual skills and dispositions, usually referred to as soft skills or inter and intra-personal skills, that are outside the traditional areas of specific knowledge, general intelligence, and technical or professional skills, Most of the authors on the topic note that in order to be a well adjusted, fully functioning member of society (or family member, spouse, employee, etc.), one must possess both traditional intelligence and emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence involves being aware of emotions and how they can affect and interact with traditional intelligence (e.g., impair or enhance judgement, etc.). This view fits well with the commonly held notion that it takes more than just brains to succeed in life – one must also be able to develop and maintain healthy interpersonal relationships (Salovey & Mayer, 1990).
I would request your opinion about how to resolve conflict in the workplace or among employees and management. In fact, this issue is beyond my field of specialization, thus I need to learn different viewpoints.

Thanks in advance!
I am researching the impact that graduate school programs have on its participants‘ relationships with themself, their work and others. I am finding research that speaks to the challenges and negative impact it has on some interpersonal relationship. I am wondering if anyone knows of articles speaking to the positive impact or benefits in relationship.
I am looking for a validated instrument that measures Life skills as defined by WHO (1933) : "Life skills are abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour, that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life".
The core set of skills are the following :
- Decision making
- Problem solving
- Creative thinking
- Critical thinking
- Effective communication
- Interpersonal relationship skills
- Coping with emotions
- Coping with stress
Is this possible ? Do you know any validated tool ?
Thank you very much!
Scientific findings in organizational psychology suggest that the quality of interpersonal relationships between a leader and his/her subordinates is a factor that can enable employees to be creative at work (for example Carnevale et al., 2017 or Schermuly, Meyer, & Dämmer, 2013). In times of emerging technologies and the changing nature of how employees work together, teams that collaborate virtually via modern information technologies (social media, videoconferencing, document co-creation and sharing) is the new normal in many companies and organizations.
In the context of this existing reality, it is interesting to examine when and how the quality of the leader-member relationships (LMX) in digital teams is linked to creativity and innovative behavior both on individual and on team-level.
For that purpose, I´m currently searching for empirical studies that cover the above mentioned research question in one or the other way. I would be happy to receive some paper/article suggestions for that topic.
Thanks a lot in advance!
Activists (for human, animal and conservation causes) who are truly dedicated to their causes tend to sacrifice a great deal: personal safety, material comforts, interpersonal relationships, peace of mind and public standing. Clearly they are highly motivated and I am curious to know what motivates them. My hypothesis is that the beginnings of their activism lie in childhood influences.
I'm studying the Experience of a Culture Bound Syndrome and it's Psychological Implications. I will be looking at the patient's personal life, interpersonal relationships and overall wellbeing.
There are 5 participants. I'm confused between case study and phenomeology
the interpersonal relationship between the teacher and students has become more horizontal than vertical. In some classrooms, we find teachers who treat students as friends and vice versa. In so doing, they try to disclose themselves to their students by revealing some personal and private pieces of information to them. what do you think of such act? does it contribute, in any sense, to the success of English teaching/learning?
Is anyone aware of any studies that have used priming prior to administering a self-reported measure of attachment security. I'm positive I came across a study a few months ago that employed this technique. Authors claimed participants answered with greater fidelity when this was done. Thanks!
I am constructing a survey in an emotional intelligence study to ask about characteristics of participants' romantic relationships.
I decided to write a question to inquire about how many romantic relationships have participants been involved in, but was unsure as to how to concisely phrase the question so that it does not include short flings, going on singular dates, etc.
The recommendation from my colleagues was to phrase the question by asking for "serious, committed romantic relationships".
Any constructive criticism is welcome! Thank you for your time!
AIMS Neuroscience is requesting paper submissions for our September issue. Manuscripts will need to be received by 30 July 2016, and decisions on acceptance will be completed by 30 August. The aim of this special issue is to establish the relation to neuroscience and interpersonal relationship patterns. Examples of research have involved the Big Five, brain structure, and neurotransmitter variations, as well as oxytocin and trust. Is our understanding of the brain at a point that it is possible to explain relationship behavior patterns and how to differentially deal with individuals based on that understanding? Please add your own answers here as well to stimulate discussion and interest.
Thinking about the interpersonal relationship that exist between students and teachers. How long can the relationship be? Are you still in close or seemingly remote contact with your formal students or teachers?
In interpersonal relationship literature, a common implicit way to measure closeness to others is presenting a Venn diagram that shows the overlap between the person and others, such that the overlap represents the extent to which he/she feel close to the other people.
I'm wondering is there any literature using the same implicit way to measure subject's detachment from certain emotions?
Interpersonal or interactional metadiscourse was designed for the analysis of academic genres in English (Vande Kopple 1985, Crismore et al. 1993, Hyland & Tse 2004, Hyland 2005, 2008). The scope of texts being subject to this analysis has widened with time, including not only academic but also professional and social genres of different domains. The result of these analyses has challenged the general methodological framework, suggesting new perspectives that can develop it with theoretical and socio-linguistic implications (Suau Jiménez 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017). A re-framing of the model would possibly be necessary if we want it to cater for new research in a variety of genres, domains and languages.
I'm looking for a 'frequency distribution' of emotions that people experience when interacting with other people. Any leads to relevant peer-reviewed empirical work?
So far the work from Bazarova was most useful. Are there any other authors doing research on this topic?
We are interested in the perceived nature of the self disclosure, specifially whether the disclosure of an event that is perceived as threatening/strengthening to the self (esteem) would result in more liking (recipient > sender).
I am examining the association between couples' (unequal) power bases and women's reproductive health in South Asia.
emotional intelligence is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically
I'm especially interested in discursive influence on intimate relationships. I'd appreciate all suggestions of papers connected to this topic.
I am specifically trying to locate this instrument for my current research using Attachment Theory. I need to find out more about its reliability and validity. Any assistance in providing me with leads is greatly appreciated.
I'm trying to think through the impact and role of interpersonal relationships and affects as structural places of analysis to understand how small scale grass-roots activism takes place, organizes itself and changes.
Are there any readings that you would recommend, or consider a good introduction to the topic?
I need to know all considerations that link both Moderation and Mediation?
What are all considerations of moderating in a case of depending on Moderation (direct relationship together with an indirect relationship?
What are all considerations of moderating in a case of depending on Mediation (direct relationship along with an indirect relationship?
what are all considerations that link both independent variable as well as a dependent variable ?
Are consequences of a connection between people at the workplace the best (only?) way to measure its strength or can we measure connectivity in other ways?
I'm analyzing data from a study, where Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS) is included. It seems that there are scores recorded for 12 items, but I don't know how to calculate the score. Do I just take the mean of 12 scores?
I searched online, and found the following statement:
The MSPSS can be scored to measure perceived support from family, friends, and a significant other, or global perceived support.
I'm wondering if that means rating from different individuals. Since I only have one set of scores for each subjects, can I assume that's "global perceived support"?
I used the dialectic perspective as a theoretical lens to explain the role of consultants in managing conflicts during ERP change process. Dialectic perspective conceptualizes conflicts as an inherent part of the change process.
One of my main research interests is shared psychosis, yet I hardly see any research on it. I believe shared psychosis is more common than people think, that it may be on a continuum similar to the continuum theory of general psychosis. However, I have been told this would be too complex to conduct research on. One of my ideas was to utilize a population of individuals diagnosed with cluster A disorders, and ask them to bring in their closest friend. I would give them both a jumping to conclusions task.I would give the individual with a cluster A disorder an assessment to determine how severe their disorder is (or that could already be indicated on their diagnosis before they come in). My hypothesis is that, the more severe the cluster A individual's disorder is, their friend will score higher on the task compared to the other participants who are friends with an individual who has a less severe cluster A disorder. To those interested in shared psychosis, does this sound too complex to you? I strongly believe delusions are highly contagious among close, interpersonal relationships, therefore they can become "shared."
In the adult attachment field, is there a term for a romantic partner dyad where one of the partner's is insecure/avoidant? Or a search term related to mismatched dyads? I was thinking unstable pairs, mismatched pairs, insecure pairs? Any direction or resources would be helpful. Looking to assess the nature of conflict by romantic relationship dyads where one or both partners have insecure attachment.
Does anyone know of a qualitative study aimed at exploring people’s perceptions of possible links between social/emotional relationships and weight gain, and their suggestions for appropriate and acceptable programs and activities for improving these relationships?
Can anyone recommend a good tool to gauge the degree of interpersonal interaction between an interviewer and a respondent? I am interested in both affective and effectiveness measures. Many thanks.
I feel autonomy and competence are very much defined by the community and I would like to hear others experiences in this.
These could also be interpersonal relationship inventories which could be modified for friendship among men.
I am conducting my dissertation in this area and I am looking for as much research as possible to include to give an exhaustive literature review for my project area.
I am looking for a scale that can measure the interpersonal relationship of the workers in the working place. At the same time, a study, connected with interpersonal relationship in the workplace.
In interpersonal communication a lot of ideas generate and accepted and later executed whereas a handsome percentage of these ideas are turn down assuming as the cheap idea, whether this win and loose tie up of the ideas can be monitored and analyzed, these ideas if executed become the decisions.
Taken as a quartet, Mead (1925), Blumer (1966), Cooley (1922), and Goffman (1959) seem to suggest that relationships are constructed from three underlying interpersonal actions: a perception of the other person, a projection of self to the other, and a perception of the reflected self from the other. Is this trio of 'actions' generally assumed to be symmetrical?
