COSTA, Crístofer Batista da; CENCI, Cláudia Mara Boseto  e  MOSMANN, Clarisse Pereira. Marital conflict and resolution strategies: a systematic literature review. Temas psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.1, pp. 325-338. ISSN 1413-389X.

Marital conflicts and resolution strategies are studied in the literature for over two decades. Accordingly, the purpose of this article was to analyze the national and international literature on marital conflict and resolution strategies employed by the spouses. This is a qualitative systematic review of the period between 2004/2013. The study was conducted in nine databases through descriptors marital conflict AND marriage and problem resolution AND marriage subjected to content analysis procedures. In the first step, 567 articles were selected. 30 of these are part of this systematic review compose since they obey the operational exclusion and inclusion criteria defined a priori. The studies point out that research on resolution strategies stood out over the grounds of marital conflict. It was identified that the gender, individual characteristics, time of unity and interaction processes are associated with the use of the types of strategies, constructive and destructive. Studies on the predictive power of these variables on the resolution strategies need further exploration, especially in the Brazilian context, where there are few investigations on the subject.
