The Psychology of Quality of LifeSocial, Family, and Marital Wellbeing

The Psychology of Quality of Life: Social, Family, and Marital Wellbeing [This chapter reviews the literature on the psychology of social, family, and marital wellbeing. Several conceptualizations and corresponding measures are discussed. These include satisfaction with social life, social adjustment, social capital, social support, family life quality, satisfaction with family life, family functioning, family wellbeing, relationship happiness, and involvement in a quality romantic relationship. Much evidence has accumulated supporting the relationship between social/family/marital wellbeing and subjective aspects of wellbeing. Numerous explanations are discussed: the need to belong, attachment, buffering, bottom-up spillover, horizontal spillover, compensation, and mattering. Furthermore, there is evidence suggesting that the quality of social, family, and marital domains do influence other health outcomes. Predictors are also identified and discussed. These include social and family-related factors, individual differences, and factors dealing with conflict between family and work.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png
