Course Detail: CON597 - Level 1 - "Bridging the Couple Chasm" Gottman Couples Therapy: A New Research-Based Approach

Based on 40+ years of Dr. John Gottman's research, this workshop offers students and clinicians a scientifically-based roadmap to help couples manage conflict, build friendship, and support each other's dreams.

In this two-day workshop students and clinicians learn:

  • ? New research-based assessments and effective interventions to help understand couples' struggles.
  • ? Research-based strategies and tools to help couples successfully manage conflict.

  • ? Skills that empower couples to dialogue about their worst gridlocked issues by uncovering their underlying dreams, history, and values.

  • ? Methods to help couples process their fights and heal their hurts.

  • ? Techniques for couples to deepen their intimacy and minimize relapse.



Each participant will receive the new 300-page clinical training manual written by Drs. John and Julie Gottman. The manual includes the latest research in Gottman Couples Therapy, plus 25 Relationship Assessment Questionnaires and eight key Gottman Method Interventions. Clinicians will be able to use and apply the Assessments, Interventions, and clinical tools immediately with their couples.
