Couples Workshops

Join the thousands of couples who have learned The Art and Science of Love by coming to one of our renowned weekend couples workshops. 2 days filled with practical, simple tools and exercises confirm, strengthen or restore your love. This workshop is for couples of every orientation and has demonstrated results similar to those of 6 months of marital therapy (though the workshop is not therapy) and produces positive results for 86% of those who attend (based on exit surveys).


Along with the memory of re-connecting and the knowledge that “we can do this!”, you will take home a box of techniques, cards, tools and tips to support your relationship in your everyday lives.


What’s Behind the Success of the Art and Science of Love Workshop?


In a word: Science! The work of Dr John Gottman is grounded in 40 years of research with more than 3000 couples.  86 percent of people who complete this couples workshop make significant progress on conflicts that once felt “gridlocked” These numbers are a big improvement over other forms of marital intervention. For example, acclaimed marriage researcher Neil Jacobson conducted an evaluation of one of the most highly regarded therapy methods and showed that only 35 percent of couples using it improved their marriages.


Who will benefit from attending?


This workshop is designed for ALL couples in a committed relationship. It is designed to strengthen your marriage or relationship. If you have a strong relationship, this workshop will provide you with insights and tools to make it a great one. If your relationship is distressed, this two-day workshop will provide a road map for repair.  No public discussion or disclosure is involved.  All work is done as a couple. Our certified Art and Science of Love Presenters will lead you through 2 days of life changing ideas, tools, strategies and skills. 


What you will learn


This two-day workshop will give you new insights and research-based relationship skills that can dramatically improve the intimacy and friendship in your relationship and help you resolve conflict in a healthy, productive way. At the workshop, couples will learn how to:

  • Foster respect, affection, and closeness
  • Build and share a deeper connection with each other’s inner world
  • Keep conflict discussions calm

Video Workshops for Parents

Bringing Baby Home™ (BBH) is a research based and evaluated program for new parents experiencing the transition to parenthood. Developed by the relationship masters Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman and Dr. John Gottman, one of the world’s leading research scientists on marriage, relationships and families, it is designed for expecting parents and new parents alike. It is a easy to download video workshop that will teach you skills that will last a lifetime!


Introduction
Bringing a new baby home is physically and emotionally one of the most significant events that can happen in a couple's lifetime - the transition from being a ‘WE’ to becoming a ‘3’.  We see pictures of ‘loved up’ new parents smiling at their new baby – holding hands as the 3 of them stroll through parks – beaming happy faces of untold love and joy.  And while all these fabulous things can, and do, happen, often the reality of bringing a new baby home can also bring confusion, fear, uncertainty, and for as many as 69% ... a significant relationship decline between the new Mum and Dad!  69%!!!  That is 7 out of 10 couples.  So first thing to understand here is

 YOU ARE NOT ALONE!


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
BBH firstly teaches couples how to strengthen their friendship, increase intimacy and regulate conflict,  and when Mum and Dad’s relationship is STRONG, baby's new life is much stronger, healthier and happier.  In addition to focussing on a great ‘Mum – Dad’ relationship, couples also learn about child development, how to co-parent with their partner, and discover ways to keep both parents involved.

In the Bringing Baby Home Workshop™ you will:


  •  Learn how to stay connected to your partner during the transition from           being a couple to being a family
  • Learn how to cope with the changes brought about by bringing your              baby home.
  • Learn how to promote the development of a healthier baby and help              them in their emotional, social, cognitive, and physical development.
  • Learn how to deal with the “baby blues” and decrease the chance of             post-partum depression. Both for Mum & Dad!
  • Learn valuable insights from a research based and research tested               program.


WHO IS IT FOR?
BBH is for pregnant couples, new parents & families with young children.
This may be the most important 12 hours you will ever spend in the preparation of bringing your baby home.  Even if you already have a little bundle of joy at home ... or a couple of them ... this is for you.  What you will learn will change your life!
