Dr. Robin Barry's research examines romantic relationship processes that contribute to individual and relationship well-being and distress with an emphasis on processes through which individuals grow apart from their partner over time (i.e., romantic disengagement). Recent projects include the development and validation of measures to assess romantic disengagement at multiple levels of analyses and development and tests of a theoretically driven process model to explain how and why some individuals become disengaged over time and how disengagement leads to relationship distress.
