Three Ways to Keep Your Relationship in the Positive Perspective

*Article contribution by Maureen Werrbach, LCPC for The Gottman Institute.

“Positive Sentiment Override (PSO) or the Positive Perspective is something that couples can work on every day. Having a Positive Perspective of your partner and your relationship helps to more effectively problem solve during conflict, make more repair attempts (an action or statement that aims at reducing escalating conflict), and generally see your partner in a more positive light.

Negative Sentiment Override (NSO) or the Negative Perspective, on the other hand, distorts your view of your partner to the point where positive or neutral experiences are perceived as negative. Couples in the Negative Perspective don’t give each other the benefit of the doubt.” –Maureen Werrbach, LCPC | Therapist at Urban Wellness
