Katz, Jennifer; Beach, Steven R. H.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v59 n4 p903-14 Nov 1997
Examines whether self-verifying feedback may lead to decreased depressive symptoms. Results, based on 138 married women and 258 dating women, showed full mediational effects in the married sample and partial effects in the dating sample. Findings suggest that partner self-verifying feedback may intensify the effect of self-esteem on depression. (RJM)
