Improving Relationships Through Therapy: The Gottman Method for Singles

Improving Relationships Through Therapy: The Gottman Method for Singles

Presented by Stacy Hubbard, LMFT on 04-13-2018 at 9 a.m. Pacific (noon Eastern) to 11 a.m. Pacific (2 p.m. Eastern)

Humans are social creatures. We crave connection with others, but many of us are not naturally equipped with the best tools to forge healthy relationships. Some of us may not know what we truly want or even what to look for in another person, while others may get swept away by romance and fail to see if the signs of trustworthiness are present. The desire to cultivate healthier interpersonal connections and learning how to make relationships work is what leads many single individuals to therapy.

In this two-hour continuing education web conference, certified Gottman therapist and master trainer, Stacy Hubbard, LMFT, will share proven clinical skills to help single individuals in therapy learn the secrets to creating relationship success. This event is based on the new Gottman Method workshop Stacy created to help singles grow into better communicators and more effective relationship partners. She has adapted her workshop for GoodTherapy.org by adding clinical material and Gottman Method skills to use with individuals who are single and/or struggling to achieve fulfilling relationships.

Stacy utilized over forty years of relationship research by Drs. John and Julie Gottman to specifically design her original program. Drawing heavily from the 2015 revised edition of The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by Dr. John Gottman and Nan Silver, she will teach clinicians many of the necessary elements that contribute to healthy and robust partnerships. Stacy will share practical techniques and clinical strategies therapists can use immediately in their own practices to provide meaningful counseling that develops, maintains, and fortifies the seven Gottman Method principles in an individual’s relationship.

This intermediate instructional level web conference is designed to help clinicians:

  1. Discuss Gottman Method principles that help individuals in therapy cultivate healthier relationships.
  2. Explain the Gottman Method phases of a relationship.
  3. Apply Gottman Method skills to assist individuals in therapy overcome gridlock in their relationships.
  4. Summarize the Gottman Method five-step model for resolving conflict in relationships.
  5. Apply Gottman Method strategies to help individuals in therapy recognize their life dreams and find shared meaning with others.
