About The Gottman Seven Principles Program for Couples

This program is based upon Dr. Gottman’s book The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. Straightforward in its approach yet profound in its effect, the principles outlined in this groundbreaking book teach partners new and startling strategies for making their marriage work. For over 30 years Dr. Gottman scientifically analyzed the habits of married couples and established a method of correcting the behaviors that puts thousands of marriages on the rocks. He helps couples focus on each other, on paying attention to the small day-to-day moments that, strung together, make up the heart and soul of any relationship.

The bestselling Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work is the acclaimed culmination of four decades of research, made widely available for couples who long for better relationships. Until now, marking up the book’s pages was the only way to record answers to its many exercises.  Our new Companion Workbook allows each partner to privately record answers and journal thoughtfully about the concepts in the book, as they apply to one’s relationship. It takes users step-by-step through the interactive exercises in each chapter of The Seven Principlesbook. This “Essential” package offers savings by combining two Companion Workbooks with one copy of the Seven Principles book.
