What do psychologists have to say about self-sabotage in romantic relationships?
Abstract The term self-sabotage is not well explained in current relationship literature.

In romantic relationships, the term self-sabotage is […]

When faced with failure, the individual can justify the outcome as due to the handicap itself […]

A sample of 478 participants from Australia and Brazil was used to investigate cross-cultural perceptions of suicide and the impact of stigma on the recognition of suicide risk in others. The Interpersonal-Psychological Theory of Suicide framed a mixed method within […]
