GOTTMAN COUPLES WORKSHOP

BRINGING BABY HOME

4-HOUR WORKSHOP PRESENTED BY:
DR. CROSSEN
DATES: PENDING

 

LOCATION: PENDING

COST: TBA

See below for pricing details and discounts.

 

This four-hour workshop is a not your typical parenting workshop. Rather than the dos and don’ts of caring for an infant, it focuses on improving the quality of life for new parents. Parents who are madly in love with each other – is there anything more important for a child?

Transitioning to parenthood is a joyous event, but a new baby is also the #1 risk to a marriage. Nearly 70% of couples experience a decrease in marital satisfaction after the arrival of the first baby, according to The Gottman Institute. This workshop provides proven, science-backed relationship skills to ensure couples’ friendship and intimacy thrive as they adjust to their new roles as parents.
