About the Level 2 Gottman Couples Therapy Workshop:

In the Level 2 training you will have the opportunity to practice and integrate Drs. John and Julie Gottman's Assessment and Intervention Methods. 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.

In this newly updated three-day workshop, you'll be able to:

  1. Assess a couple’s “Friendship Profile”, “Conflict Profile”, and “Shared Meanings Profile”.

  2. Develop interventions that couples can use as antidotes to the “Four Horsemen".

  3. Help couples to soothe physiological flooding.

  4. Apply six modes of changing the “Attack/Defend System” in a couple’s interactions.

  5. Assist couples in establishing dialogue about their grid-locked conflicts.

  6. Select and implement interventions to help couples deepen their “Friendship System” with rituals of connection.

  7. Select and implement interventions to help couples create a shared system of values and meaning.

  8. Identify and implement five different co-morbidities common to couples using Gottman Couples Therapy Assessment and Intervention.
