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.
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.
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.
