Title
Considering Adaptive and Maladaptive Versions of Unmitigated Communion: Part Two
Abstract

As a follow-up to previously published studies (Bassett & Aubé, 2012), a questionnaire was given to a fairly heterogeneous group of individuals. The questionnaire contained scales measuring the following: parenting style, grace orientation, self-esteem, resilience, tendencies toward jealousy, and body image. The goal was to determine if these measures connected with two versions of unmitigated communion (i.e., self-sacrifice in close relationships) in ways that made conceptual sense and provided construct validity for a measure new measure of these two versions of unmitigated communion (UC-self, UC-other). Consistent with the conceptual model behind this measure of self sacrifice,
it was found that UC-Self connected with various forms of dysfunction while UC-Other simply connected to the emotional and cognitive aspects of empathy.
