John Gottman and Julie Gottman (2005) demonstrate through role-playing the ways therapists can break a couples’ gridlock due to conflict. Through an intervention of “dreams within the conflict,” therapists are shown how to help couples be more open for dialogue in order to successfully compromise on unresolvable issues.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list the characteristics of gridlock on perpetual issues.
  2. To list the characteristics of dialogue on perpetual issues.
