A touch that feels blue: Depression and touch in romantic relationships
Depression is a very frequent disorder and has tremendous negative societal impact. Recent research indicates that touch with the partner is associated with more well-being, but not when touch in motivated by avoiding negative outcomes. According to interpersonal theories for depression, depressive individuals tend to compulsively look for reassurance, paradoxically provoking rejection from their partner and thus increasing their depression symptoms. Hence, we expect depression to be associated with more reassurance-seeking, which will be reflected in higher avoidance motivation for touch in the relationship. We will present the results of 331 adults from the general population and discuss them considering interpersonal theories for depression.
