Do you wonder what it takes to make marriage work? Some couples appear to be masters at marriage and others are disasters. In their Love Lab with 3,000 couples, Dr. John Gottman and his assistants studied couples’ interactions (Gottman). Over the years they saw consistent patterns. They learned how to easily predict which marriages would fail and what principles were making successful marriages work. From their data, Dr. John Gottman and Nan Silver wrote the New York Time’s Best Seller The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. That same content was later used to develop an evidence-based training program and manual for workshops.
ESSENTIAL RELATIONSHIP BUILDING SKILLS-INSIGHTFUL AND PRACTICAL
Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Julie Gottman are world renown relationship experts. Their model for successful relationships focuses on the model they created called The Sound Relationship House (Gottman). Throughout this workshop we provide useful information, role plays and fun activities that focus on the 7 principles that will help you to build a sound relationship house.
The goal of this workshop is to help couples:
This workshop is psychoeducational and is not psychotherapy. Therefore, this workshop is NOT intended for couples with severe relationship distress (fights that turn into verbal, emotional or physical altercations/abuse) or for individuals/couples in which there are any mental health problems. Furthermore, this workshop is not suited for individuals/couples who struggle with addiction, compulsive behaviors or sexual acting out. Couples struggling with any of these issues would benefit from individual private counseling with a therapist rather than this workshop.
During Seven Principles Workshop couples need to purchase the Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Couples Set or Couples Guide from The Gottman Institute. This is a great resource to have both during and after this workshop. This is a fun, meaningful and popular workshop. We welcome you to join us.
Seven Principles Workshop Cost is $425 per couple (plus the purchase of Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Couples Set or Couples Guide, which costs approximately $49).
