The Gottman’s Principles Program:

Strengthen your relationship

The Gottman’s Principles Program:


The 7 Principles Workshop for couples is a 2 day couples’ workshop that was designed due to the desire of folks around the country who were already using John’s book as a curriculum for teaching couples how to be great.  So, The Gottman Institute heard their cry and said “Yes, let’s do it!” and designed this course around what was already making a difference around the world.

The book was on the New York Times best seller’s list and has continued to be used as an authority’s source for therapists and lay leaders globally.  This workshop, educational in nature, continues to be offered across the United States and internationally to strengthen the relationships of multiple thousands.  Specifically, it’s designed to assist couples to strengthen friendship and to learn new techniques that are designed to clearly communicate in a powerful way and solve conflict.

This workshop includes, lecture, demonstration, videos, & couples’ exercises that you do privately. The various activities are very fun, extremely insightful, and massively informative.  No need to worry, whatsoever, about being asked to share personal issues publicly.  This won’t group sharing.


Chuck is hilarious! At least he thinks so. It will be great…Friday night is designed specifically to be a Date Night. We’ll be providing some very light refreshments for you all to enjoy while engaging in the training. There are numerous fantastic restaurants close by so you can quickly grab food before the beginning of the workshop on Friday. If you’re running short on time, please…please bring the food in with you. We’re very informal and certainly get the grab and go. You’ll have plenty of time on Saturday to get some tasty food during lunch-break.
