Event description

Description

Marriage is a game changer. Are you ready?

This award-winning couples workshop is based on 40+ years of relationship research! In just one Saturday you will laugh together, rekindle your spark, learn to navigate your differences like a pro, and walk away with practical skills and insights to start your marriage strong.

  • Engaged couples receive a certificate for $60 off the cost of their Texas marriage license (valid for 1 year).
  • All workshop materials (plus lunch and snacks!) are included in the registration fee.
  • Content is presented in a seminar style. Learn as a group, and then complete exercises privately with your partner.
  • This is NOT group therapy! The workshop is educational, based on more than four decades of research by Dr. John Gottman, one of the nation’s most acclaimed relationship experts!

Couples will learn and practice proven tools to:

  • Make conflict work for your relationship

  • Deepen intimacy and build trust

  • Identify your solvable vs. perpetual issues

  • Strengthen your foundation of friendship

  • Communicate clearly and effectively (...and get more of what you want and need as a result!)​​

FAQs

Where will the workshop be held?

The exact address will be emailed to registered couples 2 weeks in advance, along with other reminders, but the primary venue for 2020 is in Allen, TX.

What time should we arrive?

Couples are encouraged to arrive by 8:15 a.m. to park, locate the workshop, check-in, and get settled. We'll get started promptly at 8:30 a.m.

What is provided, and what should we bring?

All materials required for the class will be there for you...just come eager to learn, try out some new tools, and have a great time with your partner! Dress casually and comfortably. Lunch will be provided.

What should we expect?

This is an interactive class ideal for seriously dating, engaged, and newly married couples! It is not a group therapy session, so no one will be airing their dirty laundry. The workshop facilitator will share and demo best practices based on Dr. Gottman's Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. There will be opportunities to interact with the facilitator and other couples, but you will also have plenty of time to engage in the activities and discussions privately with your partner.

Does the information presented in this workshop apply to same-sex couples as well?

This workshop is based on 40+ years of relationship research by Dr. John Gottman and his colleagues (primarily with heterosexual couples). Therefore, the presentation of this program will skew toward heterosexual examples and dynamics. That said, Gottman conducted a 12-year study with a small sample of gay and lesbian couples which revealed these principles and techniques are largely effective and relevant for same-sex couples too. All couples interested in strengthening their relationships are welcome and can benefit from the information presented in this workshop.

What is the transfer/cancellation policy?

CANCELLATIONS: If you request to cancel your registration more than 30 days before the workshop, you will receive a full refund, less the non-refundable Eventbrite fees. No refunds will be issued within 30 days of the workshop. If the facilitator has to cancel a workshop due to unforeseen circumstances, couples will receive full refunds.

TRANSFERS: You may transfer to another scheduled workshop without a transfer fee if you do so more than 7 days in advance. Transfers requested less than 1 week before a workshop will incur a $50 transfer fee.

**No shows are not eligible for transfers or refunds, as the costs to run the course have already been incurred.**
