CPE 193 Bridging the Couple Chasm, Gottman Couples Therapy: A Research Based Approach




Course Description

When couples enter the therapy office, they sting with pain and despair. They look to the clinician to referee chronic conflicts, fix their partners, and rebuild burned bridges. Now, based on Dr. John Gottman's 35 years of compelling research with over 3000 couples, there is a practical and highly effective approach to guiding these couples across the chasm that divides them. In this workshop Dr. Vagdevi Meunier will provide you with a research based roadmap for helping couples to compassionately manage their conflicts, deepen their friendship and intimacy, and share their life purpose and dreams.
