Module 1: Making Relationships Work
John and Julie draw upon their extensive research to reveal specifically what successful couples do to create long-lasting relationships and what the benefits of stable, committed relationships actually are. Based upon Dr. Gottman’s best-selling book, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, in this module you’ll learn the key ingredients for building trust, loyalty, and commitment and making love last a lifetime.
Module 2: Strengthening Relationships through Resurfacing Trauma and PTSD
Julie shares her insight on the impact of PTSD on committed relationships using real examples of trauma caused by early abandonment, childhood abuse, and military combat. She demonstrates a therapeutic approach that combines individual PTSD treatment with Gottman Method Couples Therapy. You’ll watch this all come to life in with a video case example.
Module 3: Benefits of Integration, Insight on Flooding and Dealing with Resistance
Learn how to interweave mindfulness and integration in your couples work using evidenced-based interventions from Gottman Method Couples Therapy. You learn how to engage with clients who are “flooded” or feeling attacked in therapy, and offer them tools to improve open communication both in and outside of therapy. John and Julie will also show you how to connect with resistant clients on a deeper level to help the couple move forward.
Module 4: Storytelling and Life’s Deeper Meaning
Storytelling is a big part of Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and in this module, you’ll learn how to use storytelling with couples therapy and in groups. Dreams-Within-Conflict strategies are demonstrated with an in-session video, and you’ll gain valuable exercises and tools that will help couples develop empathy and deeper understanding of each other.
Module 5: Infidelity
John reveals the dynamics of betrayal and how to safeguard (or heal) relationships. You’ll see practical flowcharts to conceptualize how couples build trust and loyalty, versus how couples build distrust and betrayal. Julie relates the identity of self and suffering to an affair, and shares an affair case example to demonstrate how to apply Gottman Method Couples Therapy to help the couple heal.
Module 6: Healing After an Affair
Take everything that was shared about affairs and infidelity in the previous module and put it to practice in therapy. Julie walks you from the initial assessment through the treatment. New strategies for preventing distrust and betrayal, and strategies for healing from betrayal will be presented and also illustrated using actual case examples.
