Gottman Couples Therapy Level 1 Training

The Seattle School is pleased to offer a two-day Gottman Couples Therapy Level 1 Training workshop to our students, alumni, and counseling professionals. Facilitated by alumnus Zach Brittle (MACP ‘01), this workshop is a proctored video training presenting Drs. John and Julie Gottman’s internationally recognized and evidence-based Gottman Couples Therapy methodology.

This workshop will give you new insights into treatment for couples who struggle, using proven assessment techniques and intervention strategies. This practical, emotion-focused, and highly effective approach is based on Drs. John and Julie Gottman’s four decades of research with more than 3,000 couples—the most extensive study ever done on marital stability and divorce prediction. This is the same training the Gottman’s currently teach to clinicians around the world, and it includes:

  • Demonstrations of the Gottman’s working with real clients, using Gottman Method Therapy
  • Thorough explanation of Dr. John Gottman’s research with couples
  • One 300-page clinical training manual, featuring 25 relationship assessment questionnaires and interventions, designed to help couples work through the Sound Relational House
  • Certificate of Completion in Gottman Couples Therapy Level 1 Training

Practitioners can receive 10.75 Continuing Education Units for an additional $29.99 paid at the event.

Please register by May 27.
