This chapter presents a transactional model for understanding the linkages between individual and relationship distress within couple interactions, describing how specific patterns of ineffective communication can develop over time. The role of emotion (and dysregulated emotion) in relationships, along with the roles of accurate (vs. inaccurate) expression and validating (vs. invalidating) responses are highlighted, and treatment implications and directions for future research are discussed.

Keywords:   accurate expression, couples, distress, emotion regulation, negative emotion, transactional model, validation
