This two-day workshop is an intensive overview of The Gottman Method, an evidenced-based approach to couples therapy. Participants will learn to identify key points in couples’ interactions when interventions will be most effective; strategies to help partners shift from attack to connection; methods to help couples solve their own problems; skills to empower couples to dialogue about their worst gridlocked issues; and tools to support couples’ friendship and intimacy.
Upon conclusion of this workshop, participants will learn:

•How the quality of relationships affects the immune system, physical health and well-being.
•How marital problems change over time, but never go away–even in happy couples.
