The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work is the bestselling and acclaimed culmination of four decades of research, presented in an accessible format to anyone who longs for stronger, healthier relationships.
Until now, marking up the book’s pages was the only way for readers to record answers to its many exercises. Our new Couples Guide takes couples step-by-step through the interactive exercises in each chapter of The Seven Principles, and it offers each partner their own private space to work through exercises and journal thoughtfully about each principle as it applies to their own relationship.
The Seven Principles Workshop for couples is a two-day marriage workshop based on the internationally acclaimed research of Dr. John Gottman as presented in his New York Times bestselling book—The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. This educational workshop has been offered across the US and internationally, and has strengthened the relationships of tens of thousands of couples. It’s specifically designed to help couples improve their friendship and learn powerful communication and conflict management skills.
The workshop includes lectures, demonstrations, videos, and private couples exercises. The activities are fun, insightful and informative. And there is no need to worry about sharing your personal problems in front of others… we don’t do any group sharing at this workshop.
The seminar imparts in practical, applicable ways the findings of Dr. Gottman’s four decades of research on the habits and patterns of couples. His scientific, longitudinal studies at the University of Washington are without peer in their study of over four thousand couples, measuring everything from the way couples talk to each other, to vital signs, to stress hormone levels, to conflict-recovery techniques.
The research conducted by The Gottman Institute has made Dr. Gottman the most-quoted author on marriage by other authors on marriage. It has provided solid, scientifically-validated conclusions on what makes relationships work. In fact, so reliable are Dr. Gottman’s principles that he can observe a married couple in conflict for fifteen minutes and determine whether they will divorce—with over 90% accuracy—assuming their interactive patterns remain unchanged.
If you’ve ever wondered why some couples thrive while others dive, this seminar will provide answers. In less than a full weekend, you’ll learn the six toxic patterns observed in “disaster couples” that cause their demise, and the seven relationship-building patterns observed in “master couples.” As a couple, you will engage in private exercises to help you apply—in-seminar—the Principles to your relationship.
Couples will learn and practice research-proven tools:
Make conflict work for your relationship
Deepen intimacy and build trust
Identify your solvable vs. perpetual issues
Strengthen your foundation of friendship
Collaborate more effectively to solve problems
Communicate clearly and effectively (…and get more of what you want and need as a result!)
The registration cost is per couple and includes one complimentary copy of Dr. Gottman’s book: The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. (Professionals who work with couples, and are interested in the research from an educational standpoint, may attend unaccompanied, or with their partner, or with a colleague or friend.)

Is the seminar only for married couples?

Spring Art and Science of Love Couples Workshop in Jacksonville
Repair, strengthen, and enhance your relationship at the Art and Science of Love: A Weekend Workshop for Couples in Jacksonville April 13-14, 2024.
Our curriculum is developed from 50 years of research with more than 3,000 couples. It’s grounded on what actually works in relationships that are happy and stable, not idealistic notions or anecdotal evidence of what a relationship should be. On day one, you will learn how to build friendship in your relationship and express feelings of respect and affection. On day two, you will learn how to manage conflict and communicate effectively.
You and your partner will learn how to foster respect, affection, and closeness in your relationship. You will build and share a deeper connection with each other. You’ll learn how to keep conflict discussions calm, how to break through gridlocked conflict, and how to strengthen and maintain the gains in your relationship.
Other workshop topics include:
This workshop is designed for ALL couples in a committed relationship. You do not need to be married. If you have a strong relationship, this workshop will provide you with the insights and tools to foster further closeness, friendship, and trust. If your relationship is distressed, this two-day workshop will provide you with a greater understanding of your relationship and a road map for repair.
No public disclosure is involved. All work is done as a couple and I will be available to provide support during exercises. This educational workshop may not be appropriate for couples dealing with addiction, domestic violence, or other serious relationship issues. In those situations, we recommend seeking counseling with a Gottman trained therapist.
