Equipping Couples Transitioning to Parenthood

In this 2-part class series, licensed therapist Marla Field will teach new parents (or parents-to-be!) practical and research-driven strategies for transitioning into parenthood while nurturing a strong, healthy partnership. Each session will consist of a lecture, group discussion, and workshop time for couples. Infants up to 1 year of age are welcome to come along.

Session 1 will introduce the basics of the Gottman method, a set of strategies for building strong families popularized in Bringing Baby Home. After a brief overview of the research supporting this method, couples will learn and then practice these strategies for addressing both baby's and parents' needs. Session 2 will explore these concepts in greater depth.

Tickets are 1 per couple. $20-30
