  • Reinforce and expand the skills learned through The Art and Science of Love and other Gottman materials

  • Use Softened Start-up with new exercises to reduce defensiveness and the other Four Horsemen
  • Learn how to deal with enduring vulnerabilities
  • Talk about current relationship issues like money and/or sexuality and get the tools to enhance these areas of your relationship

Don’t put off setting aside time to focus on making your relationship sparkle!


"I gained a greater awareness of how my behavior affected my husband's; I gained new insights about how to go about discussing difficult topics, and I gained skills to help tackle re-occurring sensitivities which tend to create distance within our relationship."

“It was like the light went on. We were able to apply the Gottman Method in many areas after attending The Art and Science of Love, but this workshop gave us a further strengthening and deepening experience.”

This workshop is psycho-educational and not therapy. All information gathered during the registration process is confidential. No public discussion or disclosure is involved. All work is done as a couple, and a trained Gottman therapist is available to support one-on-one during exercises.
