About

What is the Gottman Method?

The Gottman Method for Healthy Relationships is a form of couples-based therapy and education that derives from the relationship research of psychologist John Gottman. For more than 40 years, Gottman identified and tested the elements of an enduring relationship. Gottman and his wife, psychologist Julie Schwartz Gottman, created the clinical treatment framework known as the Gottman Method and launched the Gottman Institute, a center for training, research, and education.
One of the major tenets of the Gottman Method is that couples require five times more positive interactions than negative, as negative emotions, like defensiveness and contempt, hurt a relationship more than positive ones heal. As a result, the therapy focuses on developing the skills and understanding necessary for partners to maintain fondness and admiration, turn toward each other to get their needs met, and manage conflict. It also focuses on how couples can react and repair relations when they do hurt each other.

When is this method used for Couples or individuals?

-Are you stuck in conflict
-Coping with infidelity
-Struggling with Communication
-In a stagnant relationship or emotionally distant
-Facing difficulty over specific issues, such as money, parenting, or sex

How it works:

The treatment focuses on the nine components of a healthy relationship, what Gottman calls "The Sound Relationship House."
-Share Fondness and Admiration
-Turn Towards Instead of Away
-The Positive Perspective
-Manage Conflict
-Make Life Dreams Come True
-Create Shared Meaning
-Trust
-Commitment
