How Intention Builds Positive Relationships


This video is part of the "Applied Approaches for Building Positive Relationships" series. In this series of five videos, relationship expert Dr. Justin Coulson teaches you powerful strategies that will improve relationships for clients at an individual, couple, family-systems, or broader level.

In this video, Dr. Justin Coulson (Happy Families) describes through engaging anecdotes and research-based concepts how intention can build positive relationships. Coulson explains how biases of perception, such as fundamental attribution error and confirmation bias, work to hammer our relationships. Relationships thrive, he says, when we can focus on character strengths and virtues and a way of being which is in accord with Buber's notions of "I-Thou" (called "I-You" by Coulson). Coulson also weaves in ideas of mindlessness and mindfulness in relationships to explain how a mindful, present-centered, context-sensitive engagement with another person can lead to "above the line" thinking and engender positive relationships.
