Bringing Baby Home Workshop — Now Online!
Bringing Baby Home is a 12 hour educational workshop which was designed and created by relationship experts, Drs. John and Julie Gottman, at The Relationship Research Institute in Seattle, Washington. The Gottman’s research demonstrates that when couples become parents, there is a significant decrease in their relationship satisfaction. Further research has shown that relationship discord and conflict have a profound negative effect on the couples’ infants and toddlers.
The goal of this program is to improve the quality of life for babies and children by strengthening the parental relationship.
Who is it for?
The program is for pregnant couples and families with children up to three years of age. Babies in arms are welcome (less than 1 year of age).
What is the structure?
7.5 hours of the workshop are completed with the trainer, Julia Ward, during three 2.5 hour virtual sessions, and the other 4.5 hours are completed by the couple in between sessions.
What is covered?
- Increase friendship in the relationship
- Deal effectively with conflict
- Keep dads involved in infant care and parenting
