About the event
Certified Gottman Couples Therapist and experienced Psychologist Madonna Hirning (Director, Sunshine Coast Couples Clinic) presents The Art and Science of Love Workshop. Based on over 40 years of research with thousands of couples, The Art and Science of Love workshop will give you new insights and research-based skills that can dramatically improve the intimacy and friendship in your relationship and help you manage conflict in a healthy, positive way.
The Art and Science of Love Workshop is:
- For couples of every age, ability, marital status and sexual orientation.
- Suitable for all couples looking to strengthen their relationship. It can be an excellent opportunity to learn and develop skills around connection and conflict management for couples who have recently become engaged, married or committed to each other.
- Suitable for couples experiencing relationship distress - the workshop will provide you with the space and tools to repair your connection and can provide a good foundation for you to then explore your issues more deeply in couples therapy after the workshop if you choose.
