The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work
At the Scarsdale Adult School (scarsdaleadultschool.org)
Most people have been, are, or will be in a relationship. Those relationships get better or worse, often for reasons not recognized by the players themselves. A groundbreaking researcher in Seattle videotaped couples over many years and categorized those styles of interaction and argument associated with unhappiness and divorce, and those styles associated with happiness and successful relationships. The presenters, who are married in real life, will demonstrate destructive styles by role playing a feuding couple, and through videotapes. They will also demonstrate positive styles of interaction that are associated with marital satisfaction. This course is based on the New York Times bestseller The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by John Gottman, Ph.D. A copy of the book and associated workbook will be given to attendees. Couples and individuals are welcome.
