Conway, Kathleen Lynch; Krumboltz, John D.
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v5 n2 p120-24 Apr 1997
Examines how much attention males and females pay to positive and negative information about their marriages as a function of their belief that the marriage is either in trouble or basically satisfactory. Participants (N=121) viewed and responded to videotapes of couples discussing their problems. Female participants attended more than male participants to negative events only when the marriage was believed to be in trouble. (Author/MKA)
