About the Level 2 Gottman Couples Therapy Workshop:

Our goals are to immerse you in the Gottman Method and help you gain confidence in using the techniques in your clinical work. This three day training is also the next step toward certification as a Gottman Therapist. You will view original videos of couples from Gottman's famous "Love Lab", as well as updated video of the Gottman's demonstrating assessment and interventions in case examples pulled from their private practice. You will get plenty of opportunity over the three days to practice using the interventions in role play to help you gain confidence using them with your couples. The last day we will focus on complicated cases involving co-morbidities. We will cover how to assess for them, when to treat and how to treat them in couples therapy. We will focus on cases involving affairs, PTSD, addiction and domestic violence.
