Attributions In addition to attending in a biased manner, people also create interpretations about why events occur. This is particularly the case when this concerns other people’s behaviour. People in effect generate theories about the reasons why others have behaved in particular ways, and the nature of these theories has an important impact on their subsequent cognitive, emotional and behavioural reactions. In couple relationships, the question of ‘why you behaved the way you did’ is often crucial.

The enhanced model includes an increased focus on broader aspects of a couple’s environment. The environment can frequently be understood in terms of a source of stress and demand to which the couple needs to work effectively as a team to respond to. Additionally, the environment may be understood in terms of actual or potential 14 EnhancEmEnts to cBct sources of support and resource in assisting the couple to meet both individual and relational needs. This increased emphasis on interaction with the environment can be seen as partly reflecting the influence of systemic models of couple functioning.

The difficulty, as always, is where these expectancies are overly biased (in either a positive or negative manner) and inflexible such that, in the case of couple distress, this can generate experiences of hopelessness about future possibilities for change: ‘You never listen to me! ’ As well as resulting in negative emotional responses and increases in couple distress, negative attributions and expectancies are likely to result in partners struggling to communicate with each other. There is often a self-fulfilling pattern such that selective attention provides information that the negative attributions and expectancies are correct, resulting in an escalation of negative mood states which further biases attention in a negative cycle.
