Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work

Ever wondered what the secret is to making your couple relationship work?

Do you ever feel like you’re having trouble understanding your partner? Feel like you’re stuck, repeating the same arguments over and over again? Or maybe things are going well, and you’d like to take your relationship to the next level…This workshop is for you! Based on the pioneering research of Drs John and Julie Gottman, this 2-day workshop will help you and your significant other learn how to navigate conflict, increase your intimacy, and strengthen the bond of friendship that holds you together. Come and learn how to use these evidence-based principles of doing small things often to increase your relationship skills. Sadly, research indicates that couples wait six years on average before seeking help for their relationship, don’t wait until it’s too late to intervene!

This workshop is accessible for all couples, from all life stages; from those who have been together for 60 years to those who are just starting their relationship, all can benefit from this educational training.
