I consider Dr. John and Julie Gottman mentors. In 2014, I had the opportunity to attend training exclusively provided by this reknowned couple in the marriage and family profession. I've incorporated many of their techniques into my work and this model is one I will be talking about in my podcast in March and April 2018 and beyond. Understanding and working through this model will help your marriage in many ways. I highly recommend John Gottman's book, "The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work."
