The Gottman Method
Drs. John and Julie Gottman have conducted 45 years of research on distress in couples’ relationships and interventions to help them. They are now world leaders in the field.
The Gottmans created The Gottman Institute in 1996. Since then, they have trained over 55,000 clinicians worldwide in their couples therapy methods, and have conducted workshops for over 100,000 couples. Today, the Gottman Method is the leading therapy in helping relationships.
Twenty-two years later, they founded Affective Software Inc., which combined state-of-the-art technologies with the Gottman Method. As a result, the best of the Gottman Method has been made accessible to anyone across the globe.
The Gottman Science
The Gottman Method is based on world-class science. Some of the breakthrough discoveries include:
Combining the study of emotion with psycho-physiological and video-recall measurements.
Development of the Specific Affect Coding System.
Development of The Sound Relationship House Theory.
Development of the “Love Lab”, the world’s first multimodal lab for the empirical analysis of diverse relationships
The Gottman Love Lab
The famous Gottman Love Lab combines sophisticated mathematical analyses with video, audio, and physiology data from real couples. In the same way an X-ray machine lets us know what’s going on within the body, our analyses provide “X-ray vision” into what’s happening within the relationship.
The Gottman Love Lab Online (Gottman telehealth solution) will be released soon. This can be thought of as a portable version of the Love Lab, delivered to any smartphone or tablet. This user-friendly application will empower clinicians to serve their clients with unparalleled precision using our relationship “X-ray”.
