I absolutely loved the way this book was written. Helpful tips for how to bring these principles into practice, and what they look like in action.

I have been working my way through many of the books written by the Gottman's.

I originally thought that this book was a guide for couples that were seeking couples therapy and how they could get the most out of that therapy. Of all the books I was actually least excited for this book I didn't think it would provide me with anything.

I was actually presently surprised that the book is actually directed toward Couples Therapists. It tries to help Therapists achieve the most when providing couples

This book is very readable, but f you have done their trainings this book will largely be a review. Even the case studies were ones that were used in the training. That said, it has been a while since I initially did my Gottman training, and this book was a good refresher on key topics and things to remember when working with couples. I could see myself picking it up every few years to make sure I'm staying on track with key principles. If you are looking for a book to train you on how to work ...more

Book is very good
It is in context of psyche of US. Not much relevant to Indian context. however, still quite insightful

Solid book that highlights some of the fundamentals of supportive counseling and couples counseling. My only criticism is that at times it seems to be an advertisement for some of the Gottman Institute products. A good book for couples counselors to keep on their shelve and go back to every once and a while.

If you're already familiar with the Gottman's Four Horsemen as well as their Sound Relationship House, this book will be a solid supplement in working with couples and people in relationship on strengthening or revitalizing connection. For professionals who have limited knowledge of the Gottman's work, this book will be an incredible asset to their library.

Overall, there is nothing ground-breaking within "10 Principles", but what it does contain is a number of examples featuring common issues

Very enlightening

This is a very good read for counselors and counselors-in-training dealing with couples. Julie is a very good writer and illustrates her points extremely well. A definite keeper based on well established research.

“first Horseman is criticism. If partners regularly use criticism to voice their complaints where one partner blames a problem on the other partner’s character flaws, the relationship will slowly sink. Words like “You never wash the dishes!” or “You’re so selfish” only inspire resentment, not cooperation or care. The second Horseman is contempt. This one leads couples to gallop over a cliff. Partners who are contemptuous act superior and punctuate their criticisms with a sneer, a left lip corner raise, or an eye roll that signifies their superiority and disgust. They may also mock their partner or use sarcasm, like, “Aw, your pinkie hurts? Poor baby. Guess that gets you out of doing the dishes … again.” 0 likes
