Dr. Gottman's life's work: the seven principles that guide couples on the path toward a harmonious and long-lasting relationship. Straightforward in its approach, yet profound in its effect, the principles outlined in the workshop teach partners new and startling strategies for making their marriage work. Dr. Gottman has scientifically analysed the habits of married couples and established a method of correcting the behaviour that puts thousands of marriages on the rocks. He helps couples focus on each other and on paying attention to the small day-to-day moments that, strung together, make up the heart and soul of any relationship. Packed with questionnaires and exercises whose effectiveness has been proven in Dr. Gottman's workshops, this is the definitive guide for anyone who wants their relationship to attain its highest potential.

Proven tools to help couples:

  • Improve friendship, fondness and admiration
  • Enhance romance and intimacy
  • Manage conflict constructively
  • Gain skills to address perpetual and solvable problems
  • Create shared meaning
  • Maintain gains throughout a lifetime
