Includes Bonus Talk by Esther Perel - The New Rules of Love & Commitment
John Gottman and Julie Schwartz Gottman, world-renowned for their work on marital stability and divorce prediction, present a comprehensive review of the science of successful relationships. They will also present research-based interventions to transform disasters into healthy relationships.
As they will demonstrate, their discoveries highlight how happy marriages come in many different styles - but not necessarily in accord with popular, or even clinical, preconceptions of what they should be. The Gottmans will separate myth from reality in our ideas about what works in developing their craft of couples therapists. They will also go beyond interventions to explore the inner world of the couples therapist, including the fears and frustrations every couples therapist faces. Finally, they will focus on how to stay calm in the midst of couples’ stormy conflicts, how to have hope when couples are hopeless, and adjust when couples’ beliefs or values are at odds with our own.
Esther Perel, one of the world's most original and insightful thinkers about couples, sexuality, and the peculiar paradoxes besetting modern marriage in the Western world, will bring her rare gift for speaking the unspoken. She will articulate the hidden psychological states most people can't yet put into words. Esther Perel will present the complicated and contradictory needs that are shaping marriage and commitment today.
