Gottman Method Couples Therapy combines the knowledge and wisdom of more than three decades of research with over 3,000 couples. Through research-based interventions and exercises, it helps couples achieve long-term healthy relationships by breaking through barriers and achieving greater understanding, connection and intimacy. These long-term healthy relationships start by:
- Increasing respect, affection, and closeness
- Breaking through and resolving conflict when they feel stuck
- Generating greater understanding between partners
- Keeping conflict discussions calm
Research shows that to make a relationship last, couples must become better friends, learn to manage conflict, and create ways to support each other’s hopes for the future. Drs. John and Julie Gottman have shown how couples can accomplish this by paying attention to what they call the Sound Relationship House, or the seven components of healthy couple-ships.
