The founder of the Gottman Institute for Marriage Research and best-selling author returns for another sure-fire sell-out lecture on the ways that anger, blame and resentment undermine many marriages — and what you can do about it. The author of Ten Lessons to Transform Your Marriage, Dr. Gottman provides vital tools that you can use to regain affection and romance lost through years of ineffective communication. You’ll learn tools to strengthen your relationship and make it as fulfilling as it can be.
Dr. Gottman is the author or co-author of 119 published academic articles, as well as 38 books, including: The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, The Relationship Cure and Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child: The Heart of Parenting. Learn what couples can do to have a harmonious and long-lasting relationship. This presentation is based upon his New York Times bestseller, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. These straightforward and profound principles teach couples, at any stage in their lives, new and startling strategies for making their marriages work and can have positive impacts on the entire family.
