Helping Your Couples Move from Gridlock to Dialogue with Lisa Lund, CRC, LMFT

  • 10/09/2015
  • 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
  • Odd Fellows Hall, 545 Pacific Ave., Santa Rosa

Presented by Lisa Lund, CRC, LMFT  - John Gottman's research revealed that 69% of the problems couples argue about cannot be resolved. Happy couples develop a dialogue with these perpetual problems, while unhappy couples become gridlocked and engage in destructive interaction patterns. As couples' therapists, one of the biggest challenges we face is how to help couples break gridlock and find constructive ways to talk about their differences.

In this presentation we will review some of the key assumptions in the Gottman approach to couple conflict. We will view film clips of real couples from Gottman's research lab that demonstrate behaviors that escalate negativity and physiological arousal as well as film clips of Julie Gottman using two Gottman interventions with a real couple.
