Thanks, the OSCH Executive Board.

This 3 hour workshop will be led by John Crossen, Ph.D. with facilitation by OSCH members Catherine Cummings and David Boyer. This course will provide participants an introduction to the Gottman method 'sound relationship house' model of couples therapy that is conducive to interweaving hypnotic procedures to enhance positive sentiment, encouraging positive relationship affection 'bids' (pro-social behaviors), and enhancing motivation with future anticipation as well as hypnotic relaxation strategies for affect regulation to manage emotional 'flooding.'  

The course will provide experiential demonstration and practice in small groups integrating hypnosis with selected interventions of Gottman style couples therapy including Love-Mapping, Gentle Start-Up, and De-escalation of flooding. 

Location: Lewis & Clark College, 615 SW Palatine Rd., Miller Hall Room 102

Time: 9:00 am - noon.  8:30- 9:00 am, Check-in, welcome, networking

This course is not a substitute for Gottman I introduction to Gottman couples therapy but will provide participants familiar with couples counseling a framework to consider the Gottman method as a compatible therapy to hypnosis.  The course will involve role-play exercises and active participant interaction. 

John Crossen is a senior psychologist affiliated and associate professor with OHSU, has a clinical and consulting practice, adjunct Associate Professor at PSU and has provided couples work shops and professional instruction on Gottman I and Gottman II courses through PSU.
