CLASS GOALS


In a structured environment, couples will learn a variety of ways to strengthen their relationship, deepen their love, increase fondness and admiration, and manage conflict using John Gottman's Seven Principles For Making Marriage Work book based on over 30 years of research. Participation in the class increases accountability, provides motivation to work on exercises, and encourages more active involvement. It may be less threatening to couples than seeking couples therapy, and provides couples enrichment that may be more familiar. Although, not a substitute for couples therapy, it can become a bridge to therapy. In 2 1/2 hours, couples will learn skills that improve and enrich their relationship.

As a licensed therapist who is also certified in the Gottman technique and principal. I want to be able to guide you and your partner onto a new path of happiness. I want each and every couple to leave with a new sense of hope and feeling to put what they learned to use.

You can purchase either the morning or the afternoon session. Tickets can be purchased by calling 646-331-5947 to avoid the fee.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CLASS


1. Will we have to share our personal problems and issues with the class?

No. The class does not include sharing problems or issues publicly. Couples Exercises are done privately.


2. Must both partners attend or can I come alone?

Since the class involves couples doing exercises together, both partners must participate. If the class is offered over a period of time and one partner must miss a particular class meeting, then the other partner is encourages to attend the Lecture Portion of the class. he or she may use the Couples Exercise time to do part of the exercises and then do the full exercise with their partner later. They may also use exercise time to read the Seven Principles Book.


3. My partner isn't a reader. Can we still come to the class if he/she won't read the book?

Yes, still come to the class. While the book provides very valuable information, the class lectures will summarize the content of the book. Each person will need a Couples Guide, however, to do the Couples Exercise efficiently.


4. Should we do the exercises in the book at home or save them for class?

The class will involve doing some of the exercises from the book so doing them first at home would duplicate some of them. In some cases, the directions for doing the exercises in class have been revised and updated from those presented in the Seven Principles book. The Leaders also role-play hot - and how not to- do some of the exercises in order to help participants get the most out of each exercise. There are some exercises in the book that the class will not have time to do, and couples are encouraged to do them at home after that chapter has been covered in class.
