Scientific research on marriage will be reviewed to answer two questions: What is dysfunctional when a marriage is failing, and what is functional when a marriage is working well? Myths and misconceptions about these questions will be discussed. Research findings will be reviewed to derive two checklists. Although checklists are helpful, they are not fully adequate. To assess a marriage and to intervene we need theory, which will be delineated.
To list three necessary ingredients for obtaining lasting change in marital therapy based on marital therapy outcome research.
To describe why conflict resolution is an inadequate goal with respect to conflict in marital therapy.
