Interpersonal Attunement Acronym

A few days ago I came across this material below which was insightful and something I think we all can at least consider!  Look at the below acronym and think about how you can integrate these behaviours into your most meaningful relationships.

It is John Gottman’s interpersonal attunement acronym which serves as a basis for building trust in relationship with others.

  • Awareness of the other;
  • Turning toward rather than away;
  • Tolerance of differing viewpoints;
  • Understanding;
  • Non-defensive listening;
  • and responding with Empathy.
