How can you help couples recover from inevitable hurts, fights, and betrayals? Dr. Julie Gottman describes a scientifically tested method to teach couples the tools they need to process and repair fights and regrettable incidents. Dr. Gottman briefly summarizes the research, especially what makes conflicts swing awry. She describes in detail a structured approach to gently ushering couples dyadically towards recovery. This process doesn't solely rely on the therapist, but is one the that the couple can take home and practice themselves. This method can be used not only with daily missed connections and sleights, but with heart-breaking betrayals as well.
