This is Sam Garanzini, MFT, and I enjoyed teaching your recent Gottman training. I’ve been teaching the method for John and Julie since 2009, and I’ve supervised about 40 clinicians through several thousand Gottman couples therapy sessions. I’ve listened to their audios, watched their videos, and answered their questions all along the way.
What I’ve learned is that clinicians have many of the same normal roadblocks to implementing the training. As a faculty member in a graduate level Counseling Psychology program, I often find myself wishing they could talk to students that were slightly ahead of their growth.
