ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to identify the relationships among childhood emotional maltreatment(EM), early adulthood romantic relationship satisfaction, early maladaptive schemas(EMS) and ambivalence over emotional expressiveness(AEE). Structural equation modeling analysis was conducted using self-report data from 310 adults. The mediating effect of EMSs, as well as the dual-mediated effect of EMSs and AEE, was significant for the relationship between EM and romantic relationship satisfaction. Based on these findings, effective intervention strategies were discussed for individuals who experienced EM as a child and are experiencing difficulties in romantic relationship. The importance of addressing EMSs was also emphasized.
