Yesterday I started my private practice with my hours being about half full at this point. I’m looking forward to helping a lot of people.
I started off with a couple of couples who came for marital therapy. This got me to thinking how useful it would be for my readers to be aware of John Gottman’s work. Gottman is a psychologist (if I recall), who, with his wife, studies couples and has come up with some good science about what predicts a divorce and what predicts a steady relationship. At his website, there are 2 quizzes that I would suggest that if you are a couple, you may want to take, as they are informative about how you feel about your relationship.
Here’s the website: http://www.gottman.com/marriage/relationship_quiz/
I would suggest that couples who are interested in the quiz sit down with a nice pot of tea and take the quiz, comparing and discussing the results. Should make for a fruitful discussion.
