Workshop Description:

Attend this webinar to learn from a Certified Gottman Therapist how to take leadership in your interactions, bring the right attitude, and find the right attunement with couples who escalate in session. In addition, learn how to mentally prepare yourself for the potential for couples to have outbursts and engage in verbal attacks while increasing your confidence in your ability to gain control of the room and restore peace.

Evaluate tools and interventions that will help you gain knowledge and options to use with couples who get overwhelmed and devolve into criticism and contempt. Find your voice in the room so that you can become the therapist couples learn from and respect.

  1. Participants will learn how to recognize the warning signs when clients are becoming flooded and tools to help couples understand the value of practicing self-soothing.
  2. Participants will evaluate interventions from the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy that you can use to help clients remain calm by learning to ask for their needs versus attacking or criticizing their partner.
  3. Participants will recognize what is happening in their bodies when faced with conflict and learn self-care techniques to lower their anxiety.
  4. Participants will integrate new techniques into their attune with the individual partners and your couple client.
