10353 Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Level One: Bridging the Couple's Chasm

Course Description

When couples enter the therapy office, they sting with pain and despair. They look to the clinician to referee chronic conflicts, fix their partners, and rebuild burned bridges. Now, based on Dr. John Gottman’s 35 years of compelling research with over 3,000 couples, explore a practical and highly effective approach to guiding these couples across the chasm that divides them and restore emotional connection. Learn an evidence-based clinical framework for helping couples to compassionately manage their conflicts, deepen their friendship and intimacy, and share their life purpose and dreams. This approach has been applied by clinicians across various disciplines. Research supports its effectiveness with couples of diverse ages, ethnic backgrounds, and sexual orientations.
