Level 3: Practicum Training – Gottman Method Couples Therapy
Event on 2016-06-15 08:30:00
Date: June 15-17, 2016 – 9am-5pm   Presenter: Jeffrey W. White, Ph.D, LMFT-S   Certified Gottman Therapist and Master Trainer of the Gottman Institute   Title: Level 3: Practicum Training   Presenter: Jeffrey W. White, Ph.D, LMFT-S   Program Description:          Fine-tune and master your skills using Gottman Method Couples Therapy. Participants in the Level 3 Practicum Training, together with Dr. Jeff White, examine actual videotaped cases of couples brought in by workshop colleagues. Dr. White uses these videotaped cases as teaching and learning tools to help deepen understanding of when and how to use various Gottman Method approaches and interventions, and how to break destructive patterns and replace them with meaningful interactions.       During this workshop, Dr. Jeff White leads discussions, demonstrates techniques and provide guidance in developing a road map for clinical decisions. Participants have the opportunity to practice and refine their use of Gottman Couples Therapy through participation in role-plays, demonstrations and discussions in a small group setting, and receive personalized guidance and supportive coaching.       Participants are asked to bring a short, ten minute or so, video segment (on DVD or USB thumb drive) of difficult and challenging couples to the Level 3 workshop. The therapist’s work with the couple will not be critiqued; in fact the video does not even need to show the therapist; just seeing the couple is all that is needed. The purpose will be to use these couples to illustrate how the Gottman Method can be applied to these tough cases. Dr. Jeff White will describe how they would treat these couples and then participants from the audience will volunteer to role play these couples with Dr. Jeff White demonstrating using a variety of interventions with these couples. Participants will then have the opportunity to practice using these interventions in a supportive small group setting with other participants’ role playing the couples from the videos.       Bringing a video tape isn’t required, but it will help make the training more meaningful for everyone. If you cannot bring a taped segment, it would help to bring a brief written description of a challenging couple for the same purpose.       CERTIFICATION TRACK – Participation in Level 3 does not automatically lead to Certification in the Gottman Method.
