John Gottman’s famous Gottman Method is widely respected in the world of couples and relationship therapy. His famous model is backed by over 50 years of clinical research rich with empirical findings from over 3,000 unique couples studied across time. Gottman’s Method, maintaining an evergreen relevance for couples of all backgrounds, places a priority on addressing the most common and destructive sources of conflict toward increasing a relationship’s chance of long-term success. Gottman’s approach contains actionable therapy tools designed to increase the circumstances that promote the greatest likelihood of staying together while decreasing the recurrent negative dynamics that have shown in his research to contribute the most to permanent relationship failure.
This workshop provides a comprehensive introduction to the Gottman Method to couples therapy. Interwoven with other influential relational models, clinicians will acquire practical tools and techniques to help couples build stronger, more fulfilling relationships. The course will cover various topics, including intimacy, conflict, boundaries, and more. Attendees will learn how to apply these principles and techniques in their clinical practice, with an emphasis on assisting couples in improving their communication skills and deepening their emotional connection.
