Title: The Effects of Locus of Control and Differentiation of Self on Relationship Satisfaction
Creators: Gabelman, Emily

Issue Date: 2012-06
Abstract: Previous research has shown that internal locus of control and a high degree of differentiation of self are more beneficial to a person’s overall well-being. Using a sample of clients at a university based couple and family therapy clinic, we hoped to show evidence that an internal locus of control and high degree of differentiation of self are associated with higher relationship satisfaction. After analyzing results from questionnaires, we found that for men, there was a direct relationship between locus of control and differentiation of self, as well as differentiation of self and men’s and women’s relationship satisfaction.
