PERLES NOVAS, Fabiola; SAN MARTIN GARCIA, Jesús; CANTO ORTIZ, Jesús  and  MORENO JIMENEZ, Pilar. Emotional intelligence, jealousy, propensity for abusiveness and conflict solving strategies in the couple. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2011, vol.4, n.1, pp.34-43. ISSN 1989-3809.

The aim of this study was to analyse the relationship between emotional intelligence, jealousy and the propensity for abusiveness and violent conflict-solving strategies between couples. The predictive capacity of these variables was analysed in a mixed sample of 294 people. The outcomes show that the variables evaluated are significantly associated with the conflict-solving strategies used by the couple. These strategies have a positive association with jealousy and the propensity for abusiveness, and a negative association with emotional intelligence. Similarly, all the variables analysed had a predictive capacity regarding the conflict-solving strategies, especially the couple's perception regarding such strategies. These outcomes show the relevance of these variables in predicting violence between couples and are suggestive of interventions for its prevention.

Keywords : violence between couples; conflict-solving strategies; emotional intelligence; jealousy; propensity for abusiveness.
