The Gottman Method of Couple Therapy

The Gottman Method of couple therapy is firmly grounded in research on couple relationships. It is an integrative approach that incorporates elements of many different theories and therapy types (Gottman & Gottman, 2009). Underlying this therapy, and supported by decades of research, is the Sound Relationship House Theory. This theory outlines the seven building blocks that Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Julie Swartz Gottman believe are the essential components of a sound relationship. Out of this theory, the Gottmans have developed assessments and interventions that counselors can use with couples to guide them toward better friendship, intimacy, positive affect, constructive ways of dealing with conflict, and the creation of shared meaning, which are all parts of the Sound Relationship House Theory.

For this Discussion, you concentrate not on treatment planning and specific interventions from the Gottman Method, but how it is different as a whole from the therapies and theories you have explored in this course and the unique opportunities that the method presents for integration.

Gottman, J., & Gottman, J. S. (2009). Level I Bridging the couple chasm. Gottman couples therapy: A new research-based approach. A workshop for clinicians. Seattle, WA: The Gottman Institute.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4 an explanation of how the Gottman Method of couple therapy and its underlying Sound Relationship House Theory differ from the therapies and theories you have studied thus far. Then, describe one quality or principle of the Gottman Method that presents opportunities for integration into your main theoretical orientation in your future practice. Be specific and explain.
