[Autom. eng. transl.] Despite the attention devoted to the role played by the couple's relationship, dyadic coping, that is the partners' modalities to manage stress as a couple, little is known about how this competence arises and what factors can influence the acquisition . On the one hand the dyadic coping of the partners could be modeled by the exposure to specific parental models of dyadic stress management and, on the other, by the tendency to reciprocate the dyadic coping methods typically used by the partner. The aim of this work was to analyze and compare, in a sample of engaged couples and their parents (N = 764 participants; years relationship duration: engaged couples M = 6, parents M = 33), the degree of similarity a) between parents and adult children and b) between children and their partners in the tendency to implement dyadic coping, as indicators of the processes of internalization of parenting models and reciprocity between partners. The similarities were analyzed by adopting an idiographic approach and taking into account the effect of the common cultural background (stereotypical effect). It has also been investigated how some characteristics of parents, children and partners can modulate the similarities between parents and children. The results show that both processes considered are sources of acquisition of dyadic coping worthy of attention and that the gender of children and their ability to discriminate between more or less positive parenting models modulate the acquisition of this competence.
