The Science of Trust Emotional Attunement for Couples

An eminent therapist explains what makes couples compatible and how to sustain a happy marriage. For the past thirty-five years, John Gottman’s research has been internationally recognized for its unprecedented ability to precisely measure interactive processes in couples and to predict the long-term success or failure of relationships. In this groundbreaking book, he presents a new approach to understanding and changing couples: a fundamental social skill called “emotional attunement,” which describes a couple’s ability to fully process and move on from negative emotional events, ultimately creating a stronger relationship. Gottman draws from this longitudinal research and theory to show how emotional attunement can downregulate negative affect, help couples focus on positive traits and memories, and even help prevent domestic violence. He offers a detailed intervention devised to cultivate attunement, thereby helping couples connect, respect, and show affection. Emotional attunement is extended to tackle the subjects of flooding, the story we tell ourselves about our relationship, conflict, personality, changing relationships, and gender. Gottman also explains how to create emotional attunement when it is missing, to lay a foundation that will carry the relationship through difficult times. Gottman encourages couples to cultivate attunement through awareness, tolerance, understanding, non-defensive listening, and empathy. These qualities, he argues, inspire confidence in couples, and the sense that despite the inevitable struggles, the relationship is enduring and resilient. This book, an essential follow-up to his 1999 The Marriage Clinic, offers therapists, students, and researchers detailed intervention for working with couples, and offers couples a roadmap to a stronger future together.

The "Just the Tools" edition of "Conflict Resolution for Couples" is an abbreviated version of Paul Shaffer's first book, "Conflict Resolution for Couples" - originally published in 2005, and then re-published in 2011. This leaner edition "cuts to the chase" of couple's conflict resolution, without the foundational and special population sections that made the original book a much meatier but time-consuming work. "Just the Tools", while a stand-alone title, also serves as a companion book to Paul's "Top 10 Marriage Essentials" published in 2014 (and the "Top 10 Dating Essentials" projected for 2015). It retains the same comprehensive, easy-to-understand, and logical progression found in the original. This book consists of essentially two parts: Part I is about the tools for resolution. It presents a model for managing conflict and itemizes 26 guidelines (the ABC's of conflict resolution) for identifying, validating, processing and resolving issues. Part II discusses strategies for change. It focuses on initiating and maintaining change, understanding lack of change, and healthy routines to support lasting change.
