At The Gottman Institute, we are committed to ongoing research that increases the understanding of relationships and adds to the development of interventions that have been carefully evaluated.

All research studies are conducted by Research Director and Certified Gottman Therapist, Carrie Cole, M.Ed., in collaboration with Drs. John and Julie Gottman. We are systematically evaluating Gottman Method interventions with randomized clinical trials that meet the highest scientific standards. Research updates will be announced and posted below as they become available.
