The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work

14th & 21st September

The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work

This workshop has been designed for couples in committed relationships and aims to assist them in understanding, and applying to their own marriages, the research about what makes marriages work, versus what makes marriages deteriorate and ultimately fail.

This psycho-educational skills workshop is based on the four decades of groundbreaking research by Dr. John Gottman and his colleagues, described in their New York Times Bestseller The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work.

Presenters: Kerrie & Adrian Lumbewe

Kerrie and Adrian, your presenters, have been married since 2008, they are both Principal Psychologists, and Directors in their two psychology practices (Motivating Marriages Psychology and Motivating Minds Psychological Practice). They are both extremely stubborn, both right about everything – even though they don’t agree on everything! They really love each other, can really fight with each other and are deeply committed to marriage both personally and professionally.

Can you just imagine the psycho-analysis flying around behind their closed doors!

Together they have a combined 30 years of clinical experience, they have both completed Levels 1, 2 and Level 3 Practicum Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and use Gottman Method Couples Therapy in their work with clients (and with each other!)
