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.

To register, I would like to ask for your opinion ...
For the past eight years, I've been doing couples counseling training and realize there’s more that needs to happen to make couples therapists successful.  I'd like your opinion about the couples therapy profession. Specifically, I'd like to know about how you experience training. My dream is to create trainings that really help couples therapists maintain awesome and successful practices.
So my question to you is this:
When it comes to the training and tools that are available to you to as a couples therapist or coach, what are the current gaps that exists that have prevented you from fully serving your couples?
