Couples Therapy - A Research-Based Approach

Presented by John Gottman, Ph.D and Julie Schwartz Gottman, Ph.D,
Certified Gottman Therapist Master Teachers  

This is the first step in learning Gottman Method Therapy! A truly inspiring workshop, Level 1 training will give you new insight into couples' struggles using research-based assessments and effective interventions. Combining lecture, video from Dr. John Gottman’s research with couples, and film clips from the Gottmans’ clinical practice, it teaches you:

  • Proven strategies and tools to help couples successfully manage conflict
  • Skills that empower partners to dialogue about their worst gridlocked issues
  • Approaches for multiple presenting co-morbidities including incest, the effects of poverty, PTSD and infidelity
  • Methods to help couples process their fights and heal their hurts
  • Techniques for couples to deepen their intimacy and minimize relapse

You’ll also receive a 300-page Manual featuring new relationship assessment questionnaires and clinical interventions that you can use immediately with your clients.

“This was the single most useful conference I have attended in 23 years of clinical practice. Clear, concise, and useful. Thank you so much for your presentation, your work, and your humor!”
(E.B., PA)

  • The Friendship System - the building block for intimacy, passion, and good sex
