Self-Concept Disconfirmation, Psychological Distress, and Marital Happiness.
Schafer, Robert B.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v58 n1 p167-77 Feb 1996
Uses self-verification and self-discrepancy theories to test a model of subjective and objective self-disconfirmation, self-efficacy, depression, and marital happiness. Expands issues of self-validation by evaluating self-efficacy in the relationship between self-disconfirmation and depression, and the effect of self-concept disconfirmation of marital relationships. Perceived and actual disconfirming appraisals from a spouse may affect self-concept and the relationship in which disconfirmation occurs. (KW)
