How to save a relationship on the rocks? Or improve one stuck in a rut? Clients and therapists recommend the Gottman Method.
The Gottman Method is a common-sense but science-driven approach to couples therapy.
Founder and psychologist John Gottman relies on 40 years of research and counseling experience to help clients in relationship trouble.
“Although you may feel your situation is unique, we have found that all marital conflicts fall into two categories, either they can be resolved or they are perpetual, which means that they will be part of your lives forever in some form or another.” Gottman writes in one of his best-selling books, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work.
69% of all marital conflicts are ongoing
Gottman, professor emeritus at the University of Washington and the winner of four research awards from the National Institute of Mental Health, says 69 percent of all marital conflicts are perpetual, which is why they are of particular focus during therapy.
