You are taking this training from the comfort of your home so we would suggest finding a comfortable quiet place to watch the live training without interruptions. We have planned two 15 minute breaks each day and a 90 minute lunch break so you can rest your eyes, move your body, and nourish yourself to continue learning
If you have registered for this training, we have purchased the digital materials for you by now.

Important: Please review the Level 3 Readiness (or Preparedness) Checklist prior to the training and make sure you are familiar with all the concepts listed.
If you are not familiar with a concept or intervention, please take some time to review your Level 2 training materials.

We are happy to answer questions or will review the major interventions but our goal is to go deeper and enhance your ability to apply Gottman method couples therapy to complex couples.

Participant Video and Audio Samples in Training
The Level 3 training is a practicum and participants are encouraged to bring their questions and challenges in applying the Gottman method to couples therapy.
It is not required but strongly encouraged for attendees to bring audio or video samples of their work with couples. The video can be a brief 10-15 minutes, showing just the couple and offering a segment of a session where something interesting or substantive is happening. We are using the videos to get a live sense of the couple and not to evaluate your competence in the method.
The therapist does not have to be on the video and does not have to show their technique on the video. In fact, the purpose of the video is to show a video clip of a couple interacting so that we can use it as a stimulus for case discussion and role play. The therapists bringing videos of their work will have an opportunity to describe the background on the case and ask any questions they might have about working with the couple.
If participants do not have a video, they are encouraged to submit audio tapes or to bring a write up of a case so we can have material to work with.
The Level 3 experience is enhanced by having many cases to discuss and apply or adapt the Gottman method of couples therapy to. All material will be treated with confidentiality and the clients’ identifying information will not be used. for the Gottman Level 3 training.
