The role of disclosure in relationships

Research output: Contribution to JournalReview articleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Self-disclosure happens between people and lies at the heart of almost all relationships. It elicits a dynamic process that shapes and is shaped by, relationships. We review theoretical and empirical milestones in our understanding of how and why disclosure develops, is maintained, and unravels in relationships. We show that people use their and their partners’ disclosure to discern relationship quality and negotiate relationship development.
