This updated training provides the tools and know-how to take small groups of couples through Dr. Gottman’s revised, groundbreaking book The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. Whether at your church, community center, place of business, or home, the material you learn in this training can be taught by anyone interested in making a difference in couples’ lives.
The Educator Training provides extensive instruction on how to lead couples through The Seven Principles, with a combination of lecture, multi-media presentations, interactive exercises, role-plays and discussion. Participants will be taught how to use Seven Principles Program materials, to teach lecture content by integrating research from The Seven Principles, and lead couples through relationship enhancing exercises. Trainees will be able to facilitate a Seven Principles Program for couples immediately following the training.
The Seven Principles and their corresponding bestselling book were developed from four decades of research with more than 3,000 couples. Over time, Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman have continued to fine-tune their innovative method of correcting behaviors that send marriages onto the rocks. Showing partners how to work with the small daily moments that make up the heart and soul of any relationship, the Seven Principles teach partners proven, practical and effective strategies for making their marriage work.
If you plan on co-presenting workshops, bring your co-presenter and get trained together. Whether you have years of experience as a clinically trained therapist or are a layperson, this training will give you tools to facilitate a Gottman Seven Principles Program in your community.
