This edited volume draws together a wide range of new and exciting developments in the study of marital interaction. A significant feature of the book is its focus, not only on conflict and negative interactions, but also on the processes by which couples maintain happy and constructive relationships. The chapters review and integrate the extensive literature in this area, as well as presenting important new research findings. The contributors come from the disciplines of communication, social psychology and clinical psychology, and have national and international reputations for their work in this area. The findings reflect the latest developments in theory and methodology, and have important implications for those working to strengthen and repair marital relationships.

'This is an excellent book. It is handy because of its coverage of a range of related topics and useful because it presents the latest developments in the field of marital interactions. It would form a brilliant guide to researchers, practitioners, and students in the field and one that is highly recommended.' Journal of Family Studies
