Jacobson self-control training on the spouse who must respond to an aversive initiation from their partner. We know that marital distress is associated with heightened reactivity to negative behavior (Jacobson, Follette, & McDonald, 1 9 8 2 ; Jacobson, Waldron, & Moore, 1980) and a tendency, not found in happy couples, to reciprocate negative behavior (Billings, 1979; Gottman, 1979; Margolin & Wampold, 1981). Research on happy couples suggests that someone, most typically the wife (Gottman, 1979), performs an editing function by exerting cognitive control over their reaction to negative behavior and thereby decreasing the tendency to reciprocate and escalate.

There is some evidence that spouse/actors are more inclined toward situational, external, and variable attributions, whereas spouse/observers are inclined towards internal, dispositional, stable, or traitlike attributions. However, these effects are qualified by the overall level of distress in the relationship, as well as by the valence of the behavior's impact. The results suggest a kind of expectancy, balance, or discounting effect in which distressed couples attribute expected negative behavior to partners' dispositions, while positive behavior is discounted and attributed to external or situational causes.

These goals may be supported either by direct, overt techniques, or by those that are relatively indirect or covert. Both types are described in this section. 1. Challenging Myths, Expectations, and Beliefs Spouses do not surrender their dysfunctional cognitions without a struggle. The modification of these processes provides the supreme test of clinical skill. Initiatives from therapists that are either too heavyhanded or too persistent can backfire; the cost may be therapist credibility. Logical appeals to mutual responsibility are often relatively weak ammunition against self-serving attributional biases.
