Level 3: Practicum Training

Next Level 3 trainings

January 17-19, 2018

August 1-3, 2018

Phone: 281-480-0200
The third level of Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Practicum, is a 3-day training. Participants must have a master’s or doctoral degree in a mental health related field, and have completed Level 1 and Level 2 to be eligible for this training. This workshop uses videos or case studies brought in by all training participants. Participants will role play these videos in order to fine tune their use of Gottman interventions you have learned in levels 1 and 2. We encourage you to bring in examples of your most difficult cases so participants can gain confidence in their practice of the interventions.

In this training participants will:

  • Refine the assessment process.
  • Learn how to present a couple’s strengths and challenges in terms of the Sound Relationship House theory.
  • Select and utilize appropriate tools to help couples deepen their “Friendship System.”
  • Learn to help couples identify the “Four Horsemen” and understand the antidotes.
  • Learn to clarify conflicts in terms of solvable, perpetual, and grid-locked problems.
  • Practice using the “Dreams Within Conflict” technique to help couples achieve break-throughs with their perpetual conflicts.
  • Practice intervening when one or both partners are flooding.
  • Practice helping couples reach appropriate compromises.
  • Become more comfortable in dealing with serious co-morbidities.

The final component to becoming certified as a Gottman Therapist requires working with a consultant to refine your skills in the use of interventions, and to thoroughly understand the theory behind the use of the interventions. Your consultant is your biggest supporter in your journey toward certification in this form of family therapist training. You will be able to fine-tune your use of the couple therapy exercises to truly become expert.

As master trainers, Don & Carrie Cole are available as consultants. A complete list of all other Gottman Institute consultants and their biographical information will be provided upon completion of Level 3.
