But the Gottman process doesn’t create a mechanism for students to learn from each other.
You know what’s really frustrating to me, as a student of assorted Continuing Education classes over the years?
I get so disappointed when I pay several hundred dollars for a great training, then go back to my practice, and inadvertently put the binder on the shelf.
And you know what? It stays there for months, usually. Many of you can relate, probably.
Then some “clinical situation” arises, and I go to use the “training” I received several months ago. I then realize that the manual makes no sense because I’ve forgotten the core concepts. Do I want to teach myself all over again? No! So I pick and choose a few things that kind of make sense, and try them out at the next session.
