7 Principles Program

A Saturday workshop for couples in a committed relationship.*

Dr. John Gottman revolutionized the study of relationships by using scientific procedures to observe the habits of couples in unprecedented detail. The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work  summarizes his research and outlines 7 principles that can help guide couples, in any stage of their relationship, on a path towards increased love and connection.


The 7 Principles program, created by David Penner and the Gottman Institute, will provide participants the opportunity to learn about Dr. Gottman's research and the principles in a structured, and motivating atmosphere.


Expect to learn tools to help you:

  • improve friendship, fondness and admiration
  • enhance romance and intimacy
  • manage conflict constructively
  • address perpetual and solvable problems
  • create shared meaning
  • maintain gains throughout a lifetime

Break out sessions will be provided to practice the tools in private. Class time will be allowed to ask questions and receive clarification about how to use the tools more effectively.


We understand confidentiality is very important. Other than a brief introduction, personal information is not expected to be shared and will be limited in order to maintain the learning environment.

Class Time: 9:00am-4:00pm
