Abstract

Dyadic coping and capitalization processes, although different in several aspects, share conceptual similarities, but they have been rarely studied together and, there is little research on the interplay between these two processes. The aim of the present study is to analyze whether and how partners’ perceptions of the other’s dyadic coping and capitalization responses are correlated. One hundred seventy-five (Mean relationship duration = 18 years) completed two self-report questionnaires (six-months interval) containing scales designed to measure the perception of partner’s capitalization responses, dyadic coping, and relational well-being. Results showed that partners’ dyadic coping and capitalization responses associated so that the more a partner is perceived as positive and supportive during stressful situations the more he/she is also perceived as responsive to the partner’s communication of positive events. Gender differences and implications for intervention are discussed.
