The Seven Principles Program

Join us for this 2-day couples workshop in the heart of Baltimore's Little Italy.  This program is based on John Gottman's four decades of research on relationships. It will provide couples with practical tools to enhance and improve their relationships while understanding the research-based foundation from which they are derived. 

What Can I Expect?

Proven Tools to Help Couples:

  • Improve friendship, fondness, and admiration
  • Enhance romance and intimacy
  • Manage conflict constructively
  • Gain skills to address perpetual and solvable problems
  • Create shared meaning

The Seven Principles Program format includes lectures and private couple exercises. Participants will not share personal problems in front of others.
