Abstract: © 2018 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group. Pathogenic beliefs (PBs) are a key construct within control-mastery theory, a dynamic cognitive-relational psychotherapy approach. It is common for these beliefs to trigger interpersonal problems. The present study explored the relationship between PBs and interpersonal problems. Sixty-eight patients with depressive disorder were assessed using a 54-item Pathogenic Belief Scale (PBS), and the Inventory of Interpersonal Problems (IIP-32). Eight sub scales of the IIP-32 were analysed, along with the interpersonal circumplex (IPC) dominance and love dimensions. The PBS was significantly associated with the IIP-32 total score (r =.608, p <.01). The PBS scores were significantly correlated with the dominance dimension (r = −.285, p <.05), but not the love dimension. PBs have a significant correlation with interpersonal problems. They correlated with the submissive or hostile quadrant of the IPC, which measures negative sense of self and disappointment in oneself in relating to others.
