Gesell, Nathalie; Niklas, Frank ORCID logoORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-3777-7388; Schmiedeler, Sandra and Segerer, Robin (25. July 2020): Mindfulness and Romantic Relationship Outcomes: the Mediating Role of Conflict Resolution Styles and Closeness. In: Mindfulness, Vol. 11, No. 10: pp. 2314-2324 [PDF, 405kB]


The association of mindfulness and romantic relationship outcomes such as partnership quality and satisfaction is well-established; however, the mechanisms of action are not yet clear. The current study tested conflict resolution styles and closeness as possible mediating factors. We hypothesized that trait mindfulness would increase the use of constructive conflict resolution styles (positive problem solving), decrease the use of destructive styles (conflict engagement, withdrawal, and compliance), and promote feelings of closeness between partners, which in turn would predict positive relationship outcomes (namely partnership quality, partnership satisfaction, and sexual satisfaction).
