July was another busy month at The Gottman Institute. We were featured by AARP and Yahoo Health, presented 14 couples workshops and professional trainings all over the world, and hosted a very successful Seven Principles Program Educator Training in Seattle, WA.
“Month in Review” is a feature on The Gottman Relationship Blog that gives you the opportunity to recap the news and events of the last month. Below you will find useful information and links from July, including mentions in the media, important announcements, blog postings, class photos, and more.

Eventually I took a look, and it’s actually quite simple—so easy, in fact, that even I could add it up.
