602 – Couples Therapy for Treating Trauma

The Gottman Method Approach
Julie Gottman & John Gottman

Trauma treatments have largely ignored the interpersonal symptoms of PTSD. But whether caused by early abandonment, childhood abuse, military combat, or other traumatic experiences, the impact of trauma on committed relationships is commonly encountered in everyday practice. In this workshop, using some recorded materials, we’ll focus on a therapy that interweaves individual PTSD treatment with the interpersonal orientation of Gottman Method Couples Therapy. You’ll discover how to:

  • Better recognize the signs of trauma and the impact it has on a relationship
  • Help one or both partners surface and address past trauma
  • Foster the couple’s transformation of trauma into greater compassion for each other, deeper insight, and meaningful growth
