This current research project aims to assess how individuals’ differences contribute to self-sabotage in intimate relationships. Several studies are being conducted to investigate how characteristics such as demographics (i.e., age, gender and sexual orientation), relationship factors (i.e., status, duration, quality and stress), adult attachment styles, flirting styles, traumatic experiences and capability to cope with traumatic events can influence self-defeating behaviours. Additionally, studies are being conducted to develop a typology to describe romantic self-sabotours.
This current research project aims to identify the challenges and opportunities associated with provision of high quality training for general practitioners working in rural and remote areas and increase the potential for workforce recruitment. Recommendations towards strengthening health care in underserved communities are considered.
