Marriage Workshop-The Gottman Institute’s Making 7 Principles Marriage Work with Tammy Tucker, LMFT
Mainspring Family Wellness is pleased to offer a transformative Marriage Workshop taught by Certified Gottman Therapist Tammy Tucker, LMFT, LPCC, PPS, MFCC 47375 / LPCC345. The four hour course for couples will cover the Gottman Institute's Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work.
Tammy Tucker has been serving the community by providing individual and couples counseling services as well as Anger Management and Relationship Skill Building Classes. Tammy is well versed in the many difficulties that face individuals and families and has extreme compassion and enthusiasm to help clients move through the therapy process.
The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work is the culmination of Dr. Gottman’s lifelong work: an overview of the concepts, behaviors, and skills that guide couples on the path toward a harmonious and long-lasting relationship.
Just as Masters and Johnson were pioneers in the study of human sexuality, so Dr. John Gottman has revolutionized the study of marriage. Straightforward in its approach, yet profound in its effect, the principles outlined in this book teach partners new and startling strategies for making their marriage work. Dr. Gottman has scientifically analyzed the habits of married couples and established a method of correcting the behavior that puts thousands of marriages on the rocks. He helps couples focus on each other, on paying attention to the small day-to-day moments that, strung together, make up the heart and soul of any relationship. Packed with questionnaires and exercises whose effectiveness has been proven in Dr. Gottman’s workshops, this is the definitive guide for anyone who wants their relationship to attain its highest potential.
