Level 1 Clinical Training
Gottman Method Couples Therapy: Bridging the Couple Chasm

This introductory 2-day training provides an overview of the four decades of research on what makes relationships succeed or fail. It teaches the research-based theory of the Sound Relationship House that Drs. John and Julie Gottman developed and offers an integrated method of couples therapy based on that theory, which includes assessment and therapeutic interventions.

Completion of Level 1 training is a prerequisite to Level 2 training and is the first step toward certification as a Gottman Couples Therapist.


As a result of taking this training you will:


  • Understand the importance of assessing the couple’s friendship, conflict management and shared meaning systems using interviews, written questionnaires and observation of conflict.  

  • Be able to summarize the research that predicts relationship stability. 

  • Describe the seven levels of the Sound Relationship House theory. 

  • Be able to develop an appropriate and effective treatment plan customized to the specific needs of each couple. 

  • Understand when and how to use Gottman interventions to help couples strengthen their relationship and minimize relapse.

In this two day training you will learn:


  • How couples really sustain their marriages–in contrast to common myths and misconceptions.

  • Proven strategies and tools to help couples successfully manage conflict

  • Skills that empower partners to dialogue about their worst gridlocked issues

  • Methods to help couples process their fights and heal their hurts

  • Techniques for couples to deepen their intimacy and minimize relapse


As an attendee at the Level 1 training, you will receive a 300-page manual featuring new relationship assessment questionnaires and clinical interventions that you can use immediately with your clients.
