The curriculum is developed from 40 years of research with more than 3,000 couples. It’s grounded on what actually works in relationships that are happy and stable, not idealistic notions or anecdotal evidence of what a relationship should be. On day one, you will learn how to build friendship in your relationship and express feelings of respect and affection. On day two, you will learn how to manage conflict and communicate effectively.
OTHER WORKSHOP TOPICS INCLUDE:
Learn to recognize the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and what to do if they are attacking your marriage.
Identify your relationship's specific strengths and how to build on them together.
Learn about the effects of physiological flooding and how it may affect conflict resolution.

This workshop is designed for ALL couples in a committed relationship. You do not need to be married. If you have a strong relationship, this workshop will provide you with insights and tools to foster further closeness, friendship, and trust. If your relationship is distressed, this two-day workshop will provide you with a greater understanding of your relationship and a road map for repair.
No public discussion or disclosure is involved. All work is done as a couple and with a Certified Gottman Therapist to support one-on-one during exercises. This educational workshop may not be appropriate for couples dealing with untreated addiction, domestic violence, or other untreated serious relationship issues. In those situations, we recommend seeking counseling with a Gottman-trained therapist.
