Heitler, S. M. (1990).  From Conflict to Resolution: Strategies for Diagnosis and Treatment of Distressed Individuals, Couples, and Families.
"Battling people generally go to war because they think that the opponent is a villain, and that they, on the side of virtue, have been victimized. A reframe which enables people to see that they and their opponents are both simultaneously hurting and being hurt by each other, reciprocally interacting in a negative spiral with one another, may soften the antagonism. As the antagonism decreases, the virulent view of the other typically mellows as well.
A view which affixes blame for the problem at least in part on some external cause (instead of on each other) can further enable both sides to relax their guard and begin to cooperate. This external cause can be a situation or life circumstance." (p. 277)
