For this assignment please watch the following three clips of couples having conflicts and identify the four horsemen of conflict as defined by Dr. Gottman and discussed in class. Specifically, you need to find an example in any of the clips of each of the four horsemen. This means you could find one of them in the “Friends” clip, one in the “This Is Us” clip, and two in the “The Notebook” clip or you could potentially identify all four in one clip or two of the clips. You must identify each of the four conflict tactics once (i.e. identifying two instances of criticism counts as only one identification). There is at least one example of each of the tactics in at least one of the clips–we do not guarantee that each clip contains all four tactics.
You will receive 2 points for correctly naming and defining each of the horsemen and 3 points for giving an accurate example of that tactic from one of the clips. Readability and grammar will be scored out of 5 points. Your answer for the entire assignment should not exceed 300 words; going over the word count will result in a 2.5 point deduction. No late assignments are accepted.

Tips: Since the assignment is to identify the four horsemen of conflict discussed in my class, I will upload the lecture note, which includes the theory
