Results: Significant differences emerged between patients with TBI and their non-injured partners on measures of relationship quality and satisfaction, with patients reporting significantly fewer relationship problems and greater levels of overall relationship satisfaction. In addition, the non-injured partners of patients with TBI and acquired alexithymia reported significantly lower ratings of overall relationship quality, adjustment, consensus and cohesion. Conclusion: The presence of alexithymia in persons with TBI is an important factor affecting relationship quality and satisfaction. Future research should continue to explore the impact of emotional deficit disorders following TBI on the quality of relationships following injury, and in turn, the risk of relationship breakdown.</abstract><type>Journal Article</type><journal>Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation</journal><volume></volume><journalNumber></journalNumber><paginationStart/><paginationEnd/><publisher/><placeOfPublication/><issnPrint/><issnElectronic/><keywords>Brain Injuries; Traumatic Brain Injury; Affective Symptoms; Alexithymia; Emotions; Family Relations; Marital Status.</keywords><publishedDay>31</publishedDay><publishedMonth>10</publishedMonth><publishedYear>2012</publishedYear><publishedDate>2012-10-31</publishedDate><doi>10.1097/HTR.0b013e318267b0ab</doi><url/><notes/><college>COLLEGE NANME</college><department>Medicine</department><CollegeCode>COLLEGE CODE</CollegeCode><DepartmentCode>PMSC</DepartmentCode><institution>Swansea University</institution><lastEdited>2011-10-01T00:00:00.0000000</lastEdited><Created>2012-11-05T17:06:56.4698356</Created><path><level id="1">College of Human and Health Sciences</level><level id="2">Psychology</level></path><authors><author><firstname>Rodger</firstname><surname>Wood</surname><order>1</order></author><author><firstname>Claire</firstname><surname>Williams</surname><orcid>0000-0002-0791-744X</orcid><order>2</order></author></authors><documents/><OutputDurs/></rfc1807>
