This study investigated the effect of loneliness on the conflict resolution strategies of adolescents toward their friends, mothers, and fathers. High school students (N = 180) from 8 different schools in Ankara, Turkey, completed the UCLA Loneliness Scale and Conflict Resolution Questionnaire with respect to their friends, mothers, and fathers. Results indicated no significant interaction among level of loneliness, conflict resolution strategies, and type of relationship. However, there were significant interactions between conflict resolution strategies and type of relationship, and between conflict resolution strategies and level of loneliness.
