Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Why study couple functioning? Engaging in a romantic relationship is one of the most important life experiences in adulthood. A satisfying intimate relationship is an important predictor of many aspects of one’s life, such as happiness, psychological and physical health, social and professional life, or even children’s behavioural and emotional development. Therefore, couple (dys)functioning represents a real societal issue and the interactional mechanisms underlying it warrant to be better understood. This current symposium concentrates on emotional and non-verbal aspects of couple interactions in five presentations. The first presentation (Berlamont, UGent; Sels, UGent; Verhofstadt, UGent; Ceulemans, KULeuven; Ickes, University of Texas; Hinnekens, UGent) will focus on affect and empathic accuracy during conflict interactions. The second presentation (Sels, UGent; Ickes, University of Texas; Hinnekens, UGent; Ceulemans, KULeuven; Verhofstadt, UGent) will investigate how expressing thoughts and feelings leads to greater empathic accuracy during relationship conflict. The third presentation (Denis & Meillerais, UMons) will present a model to evaluate nonverbal couple interactions during a therapeutic session. The fourth presentation (Galdiolo, UMons; Gaugue, UMons; Mikolajczak, UCLouvain; Van Cappellen, University of Duke) will focus on the development of trait emotional intelligence in parental couples. The last presentation (Schouten, KULeuven; Boiger, KULeuven; Kirchner, University of Kent; Uchida, Kyoto University; Mesquita, KULeuven) will analyse and compare interpersonal emotion regulation in Japanese and Belgian couples.
