Gottman Couples Therapy Training
Level 2: Assessment, Intervention & Co-Morbidities, Three-Day Training

Level 2: The training takes the overview clinicians received in Level 1, and teaches concrete strategies to skillfully apply interventions using videos from John and Julie Gottman's private practice. Level 2 participants leave feeling motivated to complete a thorough assessment, quickly getting to the heart of each couple's issues. Participants also receive direct feedback as they practice interventions, developing confidence in their new abilities. On the final training day, participants learn from Julie Gottman's video case studies covering complicated cases involving affairs, PTSD, incest, borderline personality disorder, and more. All materials may be used in private practice settings.

Note: This workshop is a prerequisite to the level 3 training in Seattle with John and Julie Gottman.
