Hamamci, Zeynep
College Student Journal, v41 n1 p122-137 Mar 2007
The purpose of this study is to investigate the role of dysfunctional relationships beliefs on both the perceptions of their relationships with the parents and conflict resolution behaviors of late adolescence. The sample was consisted of 372 Turkish university students (248 women and 124 men). Interpersonal Cognitive Distortions Scale, Parents-Adolescent Relationship Scale and Conflict Resolution Scale were administered to individuals. Results indicated that dysfunctional relationship beliefs were negatively associated with conflicts resolution behaviors, especially about focusing on others' needs and anger management during conflict. The beliefs, including beliefs concerning being very close to others in their relationships causes negative consequences had the highest correlation with conflict resolution behaviors. And low correlations were found between perceived parent-adolescent relations and dysfunctional relationships beliefs. In addition, individuals with low dysfunctional beliefs had significantly more conflict resolution behaviors in their relationship than those with high dysfunctional beliefs. (Contains 3 tables.)
