Do you have an uplifting and positive story about your relationship? We are collecting stories to build on the research we presented in our new book, Positive Couple Therapy. A We-Story is an account of an event or sequence of events in your relationship that serves as a reminder of your mutual love and commitment to each other and the relationship. It can be a moment of romance, a challenge that you faced together, or any experience that expressed strong connection and/or compassion between the two of you. It should be a story that is familiar to both of you and one that you have shared with each over the years (and possibly have shared with other individuals and/or couples). We think of We-Stories as touchstones and valuable symbols of the bond that you hold with each other.
We invite you to share your We-Story with us. Please be aware that quotations from your We-Story may be used in published research; however, no uniquely identifying information will be used in order to maintain confidentiality.
