Program Description

Struggling couples can heal their relationships, learn to manage conflict, and deepen intimacy. The successful Gottman Method Couples Therapy is a structured, goal-oriented, scientifically based therapy. It is based upon empirical data from the study of more than 3,000 couples that showed what actually works to help couples achieve a long-term healthy relationship.

In this training, you will benefit from Drs. John Gottman and Julie Schwartz Gottman’s knowledge and wisdom from nearly 40 years of studies and clinical practice. You will learn:

  • Research-based strategies, exercises, and tools to help couples successfully manage conflict
  • Skills to empower partners to dialogue about their worst gridlocked issues
  • Methods to help couples process fights and heal their hurts
  • Techniques for partners to deepen their connection and minimize relapse
  • New assessments and effective interventions to help you understand couples’ struggles.

Gottman Method Couples Therapy Level 1 Training will provide you with an effective road map for helping couples compassionately manage their conflicts, strengthen their friendship and intimacy, and be able to share their life purpose and dreams. You will take home understanding and experience of the method and practical strategies to significantly impact your work.
