Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 29, 2014
The Gottman Institute, co-founded by world-renowned researchers and couples therapists Drs. John and Julie Gottman, has announced a two-day collaborative training event in Seattle, Washington with Dr. Dan Siegel, internationally acclaimed pioneer in Interpersonal Neurobiology. The Siegel-Gottman Summit will be the first time that Drs. John and Julie Gottman, co-creators of Gottman Method Couples Therapy, will share the stage with Dr. Dan Siegel in an interactive, in-depth training and discussion.
"We're looking forward to a conference where we have a lot of interaction with [attendees] and with the three of us, really looking deeply at these important ideas," said Dr. Dan Siegel. Siegel is a clinical professor of psychiatry at UCLA School of Medicine, co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA, and executive director of The Mindsight Institute. Most recently, Dr. Siegel released The New York Times bestseller, "Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of The Teenage Brain." Siegel has lectured for the King of Thailand, Pope John Paul II, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Google University, TEDx, and now will be co-presenting with Drs. John and Julie Gottman.
"Attendees can expect to deepen their therapeutic skills by learning scientifically proven ways of assessing couples and implementing interventions by combining the principles of Interpersonal Neurobiology and Mindsight with Gottman Method Couples Therapy," said Dr. John Gottman. "What we're really looking for, and this is what Dan is so great at, is the integration of our methods rather than pitting them against each other. Looking at the commonalities and what we can bring to enrich our work with families, couples, and children."
The Gottman Institute hopes to continue their success following last year's sold-out inaugural Summit in Seattle with Dr. Sue Johnson of Emotionally Focused Therapy. The Summit will return to Meany Theater (1,200 capacity) on The University of Washington Seattle campus on July 25 & 26, 2014.
