“…These results, also, confirmed the second hypothesis which is in agreement with different studies (Buttler &, Wampler, 1999;Schilling, et al, 2003;Halford et al, 2001;Hosseinian, 2005;Yalcin, & Karahan, 2007).

This present study adds to and complements the existing body of research with its examination of the effects of communication skills training as well as conflict resolution among Iranian couples.…”
