The Four Horsemen Worksheet

Famed couples researcher John Gottman has identified four styles of communicationcriticism, contempt, defensiveness, and stonewalling—that predict relationship failure. It is critical for each partner to recognize whether they perform any of these and what other behavior they can do in its place. Please keep in mind that we all exhibit these at times but if you do the four horsemen regularly your relationship may be in trouble.
