How To Choose a Couples Workshop


Attending a couples weekend workshop can be a worthwhile investment in your relationship, but selecting the right workshop can be a daunting task.

I conducted an extensive research into couples workshops and retreats. As a disclaimer, I am a certified Gottman Institute Therapist who offers The Art and Science of Love Couples Workshop.


However, there are some general guidelines for anyone searching for a high-quality couples workshop or retreat, some of which are:

  • Privacy
  • Research-backed Methods
  • Recognition of a Higher Power
  • Opportunity to Practice Skills
  • Passion and Experience
  • Take-home Materials



Privacy will allow you to get to the heart of matters with your partner.

Couples should expect privacy and a certain level of anonymity. Workshops do not require (and should not encourage) couples to make public disclosures about sensitive matters involving their relationships.


Research-backed Methods

Evidence-based relationship methods offer the best chance for couples to learn meaningful skills and implement them, knowing that more than chance, timing or charisma is behind positive changes.


Recognition of a Higher Power

While relying on solid data, instructors should also recognize that for many people, a higher power exists which can facilitate healing and change.

Behavioral changes acquired at a workshop may lack the depth needed for sustainable change without a deeper purpose of meaning assigned to those changes.


Opportunity to Practice Skills

A sound workshop will give couples plenty of time to practice the skills they learn, and reach out to the instructor for assistance at any point.

The instructor-to-couples ratio should be kept to about 10-to-1 or less.


Passion and ExperienceAn experienced and licensed marriage counselor, whose practice focuses on couples, is your best bet for capable assistance in navigating the complexities of relationships.

If you attend a workshop with a less experienced instructor, make sure a seasoned therapist will also be on-hand as a co-presenter.


Take-home Materials

A high-quality workshop will provide you with materials and workbooks to take home, giving you the tools to continue to strengthen your relationship.


Attending a couples weekend workshop is a worthwhile investment in your relationship at any stage. Besides gaining new information and skills, remember that such a retreat is an opportunity for re-connection, healing and romance with your partner in a space and time carved out just to focus on each other.
