Gottman Workshops for Couples
About This Workshop Program
The Art and Science of Love Workshop for Couples is a psycho-educational workshop for all types of couples; married, cohabitating and dating couples are all welcome to attend. Thousands of couples of every culture, religion, ethnicity, race, ability and sexual orientation have attended this workshop, come find out why. In the past four decades of research, John Gottman has learned what really makes relationships work by studying and following over 3000 couples. Doctors John and Julie Gottman have designed this experiential couples’ workshop to teach you exactly what successful couples do to foster romance and harmony in their relationships.
There is no group work, sharing or public disclosure during this workshop. Couples work privately on exercises designed to address the real challenges in their relationship. Certified Gottman Therapist, Gloria Jean Bannasch, will be available to support couples one-on-one during the exercises and to answer any questions that you may have.
Workshop Tickets are $550 per couple
Registration is not complete until after our team has spoken with both you and your partner. We need to speak to each of you, by phone, for only a few minutes to be sure that this workshop is a good fit for you and your partner, at this time. It will also be a good time to for us to answer any questions that either of you may have.
If you and your partner are dealing with the trauma of a recently exposed affair, if the police have recently come to your house to deal with a domestic disturbance or if one of you has been recently court ordered to attend anger management classes, then you and your partner would be best served by seeing a therapist for couple’s work prior to attending this workshop. If after speaking with you and your partner we agree that this workshop, at this time, is not a good fit, your registration will be refunded.
Please note: If for any reason, you are unable to attend this workshop on the dates you selected, a credit will be applied to a future session for The Art and Science of Love Workshop for Couples (run by GJB Health Services and Gloria Bannasch) or be used to pay for up to 3 hours of marriage (or individual) counseling with Gloria Bannasch. We ask that you give us as much notice as possible if your plans change, as a courtesy to other couples on our wait list.
