Science of Trust: Emotional Attunement for Couples


Product Description

Published USA, 2011
For the past 35 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 his new book, Gottman 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. The author 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 each other and show affection. The book is a follow-up to his 1999 title, The Marriage Clinic.
