THE SEVEN PRINCIPLES FOR MAKING MARRIAGE WORK

This workshop has been designed for committed couples whether you are a new-er couple or have been together for multiple decades. It aims to assist each couple in understanding the research about what makes marriages work and what makes marriages deteriorate. John Gottman dedicated himself to researching and understanding what makes relationship MASTERS and what makes relationship DISASTERS! With forty years of research and a twist of humour, Dr. Gottman and his team created their New York Times Bestseller The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, upon which this workshop is based.
