This comprehensive, science-based couple and marriage workshop & retreat is appropriate for premarital, engaged, married, cohabiting, gay, straight, happy or struggling couples.  All of the ideas presented to you will be grounded in sound and extensive research brought to you from the Gottman Relationship Institute. You will learn what actually works in relationships that are happy and stable. No public discussion or disclosure is involved. All work is done as a couple.

The Art & SCIENCE of Love workshop was designed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman. It is based on Dr. John Gottman’s leading edge research involving over 3,000 couples spanning the past three decades.  Gottman is the author of 190 published academic articles, and author or co-author of over 40 books including the best seller, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work; as well as The Relationship Cure, Why Marriages Succeed or Fail, and Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child, among many others. His new book is titled: What Makes Love Last?

The workshop is led by Scott Wolfe, Ph.D., a Master Certified Gottman Therapist and Couples Workshop Leader directly trained by Drs. John and Julie Gottman.  Scott has over 3 years counseling experience treating couples.  Scott sees clients in his private practice in Las Vegas, Nevada and online.

You will learn how to...

  1. Foster respect, affection and closeness

  2. Keep conflict discussions calm

  3. Build and share a deeper connection

  4. Break through and resolve conflict gridlock

  5. Strengthen and maintain success in your relationship

What to expect...

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.  Scott and Patricia will share many 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, Patricia and Scott remain 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.

Who Should Attend...

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.  If you are dealing with physical abuse, this workshop may not be appropriate. In these cases, please consult with Scott or Patricia.
