Abstract : The paper summarizes a conceptualization of marital conflict, describes the assessment devices that were developed for measuring dyadic conflict, and analyzes intervention modules. The data on effectiveness of the intervention consist of the findings with regard to distressed couples, negative or aversive interacting and problem solving, increase in relationship satisfaction post treatment, and significant increases in reported pleasures from spouses. While the study did not employ a control group, the use of multi-leveled assessment techniques led a conclusion that the intervention package functioned as designed. (Author)
