Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Sonoma Couples Workshops

I found this image of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse on the internet and thought that I would take the opportunity to post it along with a brief video that I did with the now defunct TV 50 in our Sonoma Couples Workshop office in Santa Rosa a couple of years ago.

For those of you that do not know about John Gottman's research on couples relationships, this clip will give you an introduction into the importance of the "Four Horsemen" as predictors of relationship failure. Although Dr. Gottman identified these behaviors through the rigorous study of  troubled couples, he has pointed out that these behaviors are indicative of trouble in any relationship, including that of friendships, work-based groups, parents and children, etc...

The good news is that with work we are able to change these behaviors by practicing their "antidotes". To learn more, view our website:
