Argosy University, Hawaii recently hosted the Gottman Method Level 1 and Level 2 training programs, provided by the Marriage and Relationship Counseling Institute of San Francisco. The Gottman Method is based on four decades of research with thousands of couples. Participants learned to use research-based, practical skills with couples to improve their relationship and manage conflict in a positive way.
Both Argosy University, Hawaii students and members of the community participated in the workshops. The training was presented by Salvatore Garanzini, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Gottman Therapist. Alapaki Yee, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, also presented, representing the Marriage and Relationship Counseling Institute.
Gottman Level 1 training focuses on providing insights into treatment for couples who struggle, and uses research-based assessments and effective interventions. The Level 2 training expands upon Level 1 and involves practice using interventions in group role-plays.
