This chapter focuses on support when intimate partners experience a positive event. Consistent with many of the contributors to this book, the authors suggest that the mechanism of action is the effectiveness and appropriateness of the provider's response to positive events. Specifically, the authors describe data showing that people who respond to their partners' positive events in an active and constructive manner have more positive individual and couple outcomes.
