Margolin, Gayla; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v56 n1 p24-33 Feb 1988
Compared affective responses of physically aggressive (PA), verbally aggressive (VA), withdrawing (WI), and nondistressed/nonaggressive (ND) couples during problem-oriented discussions. PA husbands exhibited more overtly negative behaviors, reported a more negative emotional state, and showed greater physiological arousal. PA wives demonstrated escalating-deescalating patterns of overt negative behaviors. VA and WI spouses were quite similar. (Author/KS)
