Abstract

Raquel Peel studied the phenomenon of self-sabotage in romantic relationships. She found some people are stuck in a continuous cycle of relationship break-up. However, the cycle can be broken. Her project was the first to empirically investigate this topic. As a result, she developed a scale and proposed a model to be used in clinical practice and research.
