This research-based approach proposes the key to a lasting relationship is becoming better friends, learning to manage conflict, and creating ways to support each other’s hopes for the future. The Gottman Method is a structured, psychoeducational approach to helping couples learn the components of healthy relationships and the skills necessary to maintain long-lasting trust and love. Couples will learn new skills to communicate, cope and connect while moving away from what has been proven to erode relationships, i.e. The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse: Criticism, contempt, defensiveness and stonewalling.
