Nailing Dreams Within Conflict Recorded Webinar

Facilitating a good Dreams Within Conflict conversation with your couples can immediately shift them out of gridlock into dialogue. It leads them to a deeper understanding of each other and their needs. This is a pathway for them to learn how to productively engage in conflict conversations that lead them to more connection instead of hurt, anger and disconnection.

Nailing the Gottman-Rapoport Intervention Recorded Webinar

Assisting couples to learn how to both express their needs and listen to each other is a powerful way for them to learn to better manage conflict. The Gottman-Rapoport intervention is a simple-looking approach to this process. The success of a good Gottman-Rapoport intervention often lies in the therapist's ability to frame the discussion for the couple and assist them to shape the conversation towards a productive and connecting conclusion.
