Discussion: 

The   Gottman Method of couple therapy is firmly grounded in research on couple   relationships. It is an integrative approach that incorporates elements of   many different theories and therapy types (Gottman & Gottman, 2009).   Underlying this therapy, and supported by decades of research, is the Sound   Relationship House Theory. This theory outlines the seven building blocks   that Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman believe are the   essential components of a sound relationship. Out of this theory, the   Gottmans have developed assessments and interventions that helping   professionals can use with couples to guide them toward better friendship,   intimacy, positive affect, constructive ways of dealing with conflict, and   the creation of shared meaning, which are all parts of the Sound Relationship   House Theory.

For this   Discussion, you concentrate not on treatment planning and specific   interventions from the Gottman Method, but how it is different, as a whole,   from the therapies and theories you have explored in this course. You also   examine the unique opportunities that this method presents for integration.

Gottman Method of Couple Therapy

Post  an explanation of how the Gottman Method of couple therapy and its underlying Sound Relationship House Theory differs from the therapies and theories you have studied thus far. Then, describe one quality or principle of the Gottman Method that presents opportunities for integration into your main theoretical orientation in your future practice. Be specific and explain.
