“When a classmate mentioned the University Outreach Program (UOP) through The Gottman Institute, I jumped at the opportunity. The UOP allowed our MFT program to host our own Gottman Method Couples Therapy Level 1 Training at our university over the course of a weekend… Our advisors coordinated the training, picked a weekend that worked for us, and we dove into the research-based Gottman Method!”
