Assessing alternative responses to conflicts in friendship

Jonathan G. Healey, Robert A Bell

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


No matter how close we are to a friend, it is inevitable that he or she will occasionally say and do things that upset us. From forgotten birthdays to overt acts of hostility, distressing events occur in most, and probably all, close friendships. Given the countless ways in which friends can disappoint us, it is not surprising that we are frequently confronted with the task of dealing with conflicts in our friendships.
