Has your relationship, or the relationship of someone you know, experienced an emotional or sexual affair? The Gottman Institute is seeking participation in a new study on affair recovery in specific geographic areas.

As compensation, couples will meet with a Certified Gottman Therapist and receive access to the Gottman Relationship Checkup assessment and interpretation of the result. Limited space is available.

Once a betrayal has been discovered there are many confusing and conflicting emotional experiences for both partners. It’s hard to know where to begin when trying to recover from such a devastating event. Let us help you!

You will be able to work with a skilled, compassionate Certified Gottman Therapist in a clinical setting. Your participation in this study will not only help your relationship, it will also help other couples struggling with affair recovery. This is the first study of its kind and has the potential to change the way affair recovery is treated around the world.

This study is a collaboration between Drs. John and Julie Gottman, The Gottman Institute, Dr. Paul Peluso of Florida Atlantic University, and participating couples and therapists.
