About the Level 3 Gottman Couples Therapy Workshop:
During the Practicum workshop, participants will examine videotaped cases of couples brought in by workshop colleagues. These cases are used as learning and teaching tools to deepen your understanding of when and how to use various Gottman Method approaches and interventions, and how to break destructive patterns and replace them with meaningful interactions.
We will then demonstrate an assessment or intervention session appropriate for each that couple’s struggle as role-played by audience volunteers. These demonstrations represent the true resistances and co-morbidities we face as therapists and how to we can transform them into effective healing methods for the couple. Following each demonstration, participants have the chance to practice and refine their use of Gottman Method Couples Therapy through participation in role-plays, demonstrations and discussions in a small group setting. We observe each group and offer practical tips and technical refinements for the therapist. No criticism or negative judgement is allowed. Rather, efforts are made to create safety and security for all therapists present in an environment free of criticism and negative judgment.
After each role-play session, we’ll lead discussions that include case consultations and nuanced details of the techniques previously demonstrated and provides guidance in developing a roadmap for clinical decisions.
There is no better way to learn how to apply the Gottman Method than this workshop.
Level 3 Pre-Requisites:
•Master’s or doctoral degree OR current enrollment in a graduate program within a mental health-related field
•Completed Level 1 Training

Video Participation: Case Discussion in Certification Practicum
Participants are asked to bring a short (ten minute or so) video segment (on DVD or USB thumb drive) of difficult and challenging couples to the Level 3 workshop. The therapist’s work with the couple will not be critiqued; in fact the video does not even need to show the therapist; just seeing the couple is all that is needed. The purpose will be to use these couples to illustrate how the Gottman Method can be applied to these tough cases. We’ll describe how they would treat these couples and then participants from the audience will volunteer to role play these couples with us demonstrating using a variety of interventions with these couples. Participants will then have the opportunity to practice using these interventions in a supportive small group setting with other participants’ role playing the couples from the videos.
Bringing a video isn’t required, but it will help make the training more meaningful for everyone. If you cannot bring a clip, it would help to bring a brief written description of a challenging couple for the same purpose. This is for Case Discussion within the context of Certification Practicum ONLY and is not related to the videotaped interventions submitted for final Certification Review. Note: We only support digital media on the DVD-format or on an USB external device (USB thumb-drive or external). DVD disk is preferred.
