Learning outcomes
  • Choose an intervention that is appropriate for your clients in the moment.
  • Recognise the four horsemen in the behaviour exhibited by the members of a couple.
  • Stop the couple’s dyadic interaction when one member exhibits one of the four horsemen. Describe the Four Horseman to the couple.
  • Explain the antidote to the relevant horseman clearly and accurately.
  • Coach the person with an alternative way to express themselves using an appropriate antidote.
  • Redirect the couple to resume communication in a dyadic way. Continue to monitor for the four horsemen and intervene if they reemerge.
  • Identify when one or both partners are physiologically flooded (and not just upset) and stop the interaction between the couple.
  • Provide a brief explanation of flooding in clear, sensitive language.
  • Intervene by guiding one or both partners through a relaxation technique before continuing.
  • Explain the Dreams Within Conflict process and goals clearly.
  • Instruct a couple on the Dreams Within Conflict intervention.
  • Assist one partner to ask the other partner questions about the dream or deeper meaning embedded in their specific gridlocked issue.
  • Provide The Dream Catcher Questions handout and coach one partner to ask the other questions from the handout to increase understanding of their partner’s underlying dreams or deeper meaning embedded in the specific gridlocked issue; help the couple hold to the questions to go deeper vs. getting into their own point of view.
  • Introduce the concept of softened start-ups and explain why it helps (i.e., it is easier for their partner to hear and understand their point).
  • Explain research showing that the first three minutes of a discussion predicts whether that discussion will go well and whether their overall relationship will go well.
  • Explain the importance of expressing needs in positive terms and instruct the partner to restate their point without criticism and then direct them to resume dyadic interaction.
  • Stop a couple’s interaction when one or both partners are not accepting influence.
  • Explain the need for accepting influence (which may include reference to research). This includes finding a way to understand and honor some aspect of their partner’s position, with a focus on yielding and accepting influence rather than on persuading.
  • Stop the couple and instruct in the concept of offering and accepting repairs and why it is useful.
  • Provide the Repair Checklist and explain its use.
  • Ask appropriate Gottman Oral History questions and stay on track with sensitivity to couple’s issues and building rapport.
  • Conduct the Oral History interview with appropriate timing.
Training Breakdown

The Level 3 Training content represents the true resistances and co-morbidities we face as therapists and how we can transform them into effective healing methods for the couple.

14 December 2024 from 12:30 to 18:00

You will learn to select and use appropriate tools to make the couple’s Friendship System stronger. You will learn how to clarify and reformulate each couple’s conflicts in terms of solvable, perpetual and stalemate-causing problems, as well as how to use the “Dreams within a Conflict” technique to help the couple feel a new sense of hope and be able to get out of the conflicts in which they remain perpetually trapped.

15 December 2024 from 12:30 to 18:00

You will learn how to intervene effectively when one or both partners are in a state of flooding.
