Gottman Level 1 Clinical Training

Gottman Level 1 training gives you new insight into couples’ struggles using research-based assessments and effective interventions.  You will be able to build your practice and confidence in working with couples.  It provides therapists an introduction to the over four decades of scientifically grounded research from Dr. John Gottman about what causes relationship stability and demise.  Dr. Gottman is the New York Times best selling author of The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work.   Attendees will receive a 300-page manual featuring new relationship assessment questionnaires and clinical interventions that you can use immediately with your clients.  Our small workshop setting provides you with individual attention in learning this method and answering your questions.
