A Time to Heal is now offering a workshop based on the internationally acclaimed research of Dr. John Gottman as presented in his New York Times Bestselling book “The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work.”  Based on the research findings of John Gottman, this workshop allows couples to use practical tools to strengthen or improve their relationships.

If a couple’s relationship is strong, this relationship enhancement class will provide them with tools and insights to make their relationship even better. If a couple has a distressed relationship, this class can provide a road map for repair. In addition, I find that many Pastors, Priests, and Rabbis attend our class as a means of personally experiencing the Gottman Method and find it to be personally enriching and a great professional resource. The workshop offers a combination of lectures and couples exercises. Participants practice the exercises privately and do not share personal information publicly.

Participants in the full workshop will receive a copy of The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work and The Seven Principles Companion Workbook. The workbook includes interactive step-by-step exercises for each chapter.

Participants in the Program Can Expect To:

  • Improve their friendship, fondness, and admiration
  • Enhance their romance and intimacy
  • Manage conflict constructively
  • Gain skills to address perpetual and solvable problems
  • Create shared meaning

How is the workshop different than reading the book?

  • There will be a framework to follow and participation by both partners is encouraged through the exercises
  • The educator will role play the exercises to insure that you derive the benefits necessary from your participation

Who can register for this workshop?

  • Couples that are pre-engaged or dating
  • Pre-marital couples
  • Everyone from newlyweds to people married for 10 years
  • Couples wishing to enrich a good marriage
  • Those needing better conflict management tools

This program is not appropriate for couples experiencing severe relationship distress, emotional abuse, domestic violence, active addictions (alcohol/drug, sexual, gambling etc.) and those who are experiencing severe mental health problems in one or both partners.
