dc.description.abstractThis study explored the extent to which nostalgia proneness is associated with attitudes towards intimate partner violence, given that positivity is often linked with nostalgic reflection. It has been found that people with an optimistic bias are more likely to put themselves in relationship danger, while those who score high in empathy and hope are less likely to leave an abusive relationship (Sinclair et al., 2018). One-hundred and forty-five adult participants completed a questionnaire through MTurk containing measures of trait nostalgia, relationship nostalgia, social desirability, psychological and emotional well-being, and the revised Intimate Partner Violence Attitudes Scale. If nostalgia is related to positivity bias, then it may be possible that persons who are more nostalgically prone also report a greater acceptance of partner violence. The results showed a positive correlation between sentimental longing for the past and acceptance of intimate partner violence.
