How to Makes Relationships Work

In this presentation Drs. John and Julie Gottman draw upon their four decades of break-through research with more than 3,000 couples and dispel myths about relationships.

In this presentation, the Gottmans discuss:

  • The importance of nurturing friendship and intimacy in ones’ relationship
  • Understanding that a positive perspective occurs when the friendship in ones’ relationship is strong
  • The importance of managing conflict constructively
  • The significance of creating shared meaning – building a shared sense of purpose and finding ways to make one another’s life dreams come true
  • They key ingredients for building trust, loyalty, and commitment and making love last a lifetime. Our newest research reveals the dynamics of betrayal and how to safeguard (or heal) your relationship.
