A truly inspiring workshop, Level 1 Training will give you new insights into treatment for couples who struggle, using proven assessment techniques and intervention strategies.

In this workshop, you will be provided with a research-based roadmap for helping couples compassionately manage their conflicts, deepen their friendship and intimacy, and share their life purpose and dreams based on the Sound Relationship House Theory.

You will be introduced to Dr. Gottman’s breakthrough research on thousands of couples to understand the difference between the “Masters” and “Disasters” of relationships. If you are not already doing an assessment, this training will teach you how to assess a relationship’s strengths and areas of concern using empirically validated questionnaires.

You will view original videos of real couples from the famous Gottman “Love Lab,” as well as videos of Dr. Julie Gottman demonstrating assessment and interventions in a case example from her private practice.

Training Objectives:
At the completion of this training, you will be able to:

  • Summarize the research that allows us to predict future relationship stability.

  • Describe the seven levels of the Sound Relationship House Theory.

  • Conduct a couple’s therapy assessment using elements of the couple’s narrative, the Oral History Interview, written questionnaires, observations of conflict and individual interviews.

  • Describe two interventions to help strengthen a couple’s conflict management.

  • Describe two interventions to enhance a couple’s friendship system.

  • Describe two interventions to explore a couple’s system of shared meaning.

  • Explain why physiological self-soothing is essential for a healthy relationship.

  • Create a therapeutic contract with a couple, discuss and decide on goals and include a summary of the couple’s strengths and areas that need improvement.

  • Describe the Philosophy of Therapy and including assumptions, an overview of techniques and goals of therapy.

  • Describe the Rapoport Intervention and when to use it.

  • Describe the process of therapy, including the structure of a session.
