If you can only purchase one additional training tool after Level 1, this is it. Compelling and emotion-filled, this 5-disc set shows Dr. Julie Gottman skillfully working with a real couple who progress through the change process in Gottman Couples Therapy. Ten live clinical films demonstrate how to transform a destructive cycle into hope and healing, via movement through the levels of the Sound Relationship House. Filmed in Dr. Gottman’s office, these sessions clearly show you how to integrate key Gottman Method Assessments & Interventions into your own clinical work.
These DVDs are a powerful and helpful supplemental resource to use during your Level 1, 2, or 3 training in Gottman Therapy and as a tool in your clinical practice.
