This comprehensive, science-based couple and marriage workshop & retreat is appropriate for couples of every age, ability, and sexual orientation: premarital, engaged, married, cohabiting, gay, straight, happy or struggling couples. All of the ideas presented to you will be grounded in sound and extensive scientific research brought to you from the Gottman Relationship Institute. You will learn what actually works in relationships that are happy and stable.
2 days of engaging information and experiential activities designed to confirm, strengthen, or restore your love. No public discussion or disclosure is involved.All work is done as a couple and Dr. Young will be available to help those who need it.
Based on over 40 years of research, by John & Julie Gottman, with thousands of couples, The Art & Science of Love workshop will give you new insights and research-based skills that can dramatically improve the intimacy and friendship in your relationship and help you manage conflict in a healthy, positive way. Along with the memory of re-connecting and the knowledge that “we can do this,” you will take home a box set of cards, tools, and tips to support your relationship in your everyday lives.
Research shows that on average, couples wait six years from the first signs of problems before they seek help. The workshop is designed to strengthen your marriage and/or relationship. If you have a strong relationship, this workshop will provide you with insights and tools to make it a great one. If your relationship is distressed, this workshop will provide a road map for repair.
In addition to a greater understanding of how to build friendship, manage conflict, and create shared meaning in your relationship, you will receive a box set, which contains:
You’ll use these tools in the workshop’s one-on-one exercises and, hopefully, in the ongoing resolutions and deepenings of your relationship when you go home after our weekend together.
The Art and Science of Love Workshop is designed to strengthen your relationship through engaging presentations and skill building exercises that are grounded in research. Dr. Nancy will share humorous stories, film clips and role plays. During the first day, you will learn how to build and maintain fondness, admiration, and closeness in your relationship or marriage. On the second day, you will work on conflict management while learning new and important communication skills. All of the exercises are designed to address your real-life challenges and you will work only with your partner. During the exercises, Dr. Nancy will be available to consult with those couples who desire help. There is no group work or public disclosure. This is an experiential, psycho-educational workshop for couples, and is not therapy. At the end of the workshop you will leave with a greater understanding of your relationship and the skills to repair or enhance it.
“If you’ve ever been to tennis camp, you probably learned how to hit a forehand, a backhand, a lob, and serve. Tennis camp wasn’t exactly a tournament… It was a place to go and learn and practice the skills you needed to be a good tournament player. This workshop is like that: you will learn skills to practice in your life together over and over and, if you do, your relationship (just like your tennis game) will get better and better.”

How does the Weekend Couples Workshops compare to Couples or Marriage Counseling? Whether you choose to work on your relationship in The Art & SCIENCE of Love (ASL): Weekend Couples Workshops, or in Couples or Marriage Counseling with a Gottman Certified Therapist, you are in good hands. In both venues you will be actively working with your partner in structured exercises designed to build your connection and increase understanding and empathy for one another even when you disagree. The workshop is a very powerful change agent for most couples and can accelerate progress significantly for many couples. Some couples may need to go more slowly and would flourish with more assistance than can be provided in a workshop setting.
