I was a recently widowed single parent and I was lost. This helped me get the skills and confidence I needed to raise my twin toddlers and get them potty trained in record time!

My child benefitted greatly in kindergarten because I was able to teach her how to recognize and avoid bullying.

My teen is moody, tired, irritable, withdrawn and angry. I could not tell if this was normal moodiness or depression. Gottman helped me not just navigate this, but helped me break down the communication barrier. Thank you so much!

The program was amazing! The workshop reinforced and explained many of the concepts deeply. Opened up dialogue where needed.

The entire (live ASL workshop) weekend was emotional and tiring, but in an amazingly positive way. We connected on a level we never have before and it completely refreshed our outlook on our relationship.

The workshop brought us together with greater willingness, less defensiveness, more open-heartedness in hearing one another's experiences and perspectives. We became more willing to shift our mutual approaches with one another to be better attuned.
