Gridlocked perpetual conflicts often destroy relationships. They repeatedly surface, causing partners endless pain, fear, even trauma. Yet every couple faces them. In this address, Dr. Julie Gottman describes a dyadic therapy method that uncloaks the dreams, history and fears beneath partners’ issues while fostering greater compassion and connection in the couple. An edited film will be shown to demonstrate this intervention.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the Sound Relationship House Theory and the research that supports it.
  2. Explain and demonstrate a key intervention of Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
