The widely celebrated, research-based marital therapy programme—now updated and revised.
More than twenty-five years ago, The Marriage Clinic presented a complete marital therapy programme based on John Gottman’s much-heralded research on marital success and failure. The book provided not only a wide range of succinct and useful assessment procedures but also a highly specific, research-based and modularised treatment programme. Since then, Dr. Gottman has collaborated with his wife, clinical psychologist Julie Gottman, to conduct their well-known “Love Lab” studies, allowing the pair to design a highly successful couples’ workshop and develop their “Sound Relationship House” theory.
Now, in this influential book’s first-ever revision, Dr. Gottman and Dr. Gottman incorporate the results of their studies and their most powerful interventions. In addition to its original, celebrated marital therapy programme, The New Marriage Clinic includes findings on the dynamics of same-sex couples; interventions for couples recovering from situational domestic violence; strategies for couples rebuilding their marriages after an affair; and much more.
