The Workshop Program
Drs. Trish Stanley and Bill Bumberry draw on the research of John Gottman into what really makes marriages work. He studied and followed over 3,000 couples in four decades of research. We offer this experiential workshop, designed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman, to teach you exactly what successful couples do to foster romance and harmony in their marriages.
Couples work privately on exercises designed to address the challenges in their relationship.
Gottman therapists are available to support couples one-on-one during exercises. There is no
group work, sharing, or public disclosure.
