7 Principles Couples Workshops

Are you looking for a more purposeful and meaningful relationship? Then this workshop is for you!

Workshop Description

Over 40 years of research with over 3000 couples has distinguished Dr. John Gottman as the premier voice in relational health world wide.  The workshop is based on his New York Times Best Selling book, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work.  This educational workshop is designed to help couples enhance and protect their relationship by guiding them through fun, interactive exercises, and effective tools for conflict resolution.  

Good relationships don't just build themselves without daily intentional effort, and problems don't just go away, without healthy conflict and communication skills.  The 7 Principles Workshop is appropriate for couples contemplating engagement, pre-marital couples and those married for decades. It is psycho-educational and is intended for couples who wish to enhance and enrich their relationship.

Workshop Fee includes: 

During the workshop, couples will work together privately on dynamic exercises to enhance their relationship. Each couple will come away with a binder-full of rich resources and significant relationally altering experiences.  Each couple will be provided with:

  • 7 Principles Couples Workbook
  • 7 Principles of Making Marriage Book
  • Love Maps Card Decks                         
  • Open Ended Questions Card Deck.

These resources are included in the price of the workshop in addition to admission for both partners.  Materials will be handed out at the beginning of the workshop. No prior reading necessary.  

Who is the workshop intended to serve?

The workshop is recommended for couples looking to address the following:

  • Manage conflict constructively

  • Protect your relationship from external stressors

  • Improve friendship, fondness, and admiration
  • Enhance connection and intimacy
  • Gain skills to address perpetual and solvable problems
  • Save time and money by learning these tools within a workshop setting

Who is this workshop NOT intended for?

  • This is not therapy, or group counselling. Attendees must come as a couple.
  • Couples experiencing severe relationship distress (conflict escalates to verbal or physical aggression)
  • Couples experiencing emotional or physical abuse
  • Couples experiencing significant emotional or mental health distress

Couples struggling with these issues would benefit more from one-on-one private counseling with a therapist rather than this workshop. If you would like to work with a Gottman Trained Therapist please head over to the Gottman Institute Referral Network to find a therapist near you.
