Gottman – Imago Audio

Imago Gottman in dialogue. This Audio begins with the Gottmans explaining their methods, it is followed by a discussion with all four of them.

I’m interested mainly in the relationship between the two modalities, on the way I noted Gottman’s research on emotions and children. He mentions that towards the end of the Gottman talk before the discussion.

I found the book on children:

RAISING AN EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT CHILD: THE HEART OF PARENTING BOOK

Its pretty basic, details follow, but it was nicely put in the audio, so worth a listen.

Dr. Gottman draws on his studies of more than 120 families to zero in on the parenting techniques that ensure a child’s emotional health. He then translates his methods into an easy, five-step “emotion coaching” process to help parents:

Be aware of a child’s emotions
Recognize emotional expression as an opportunity for intimacy and teaching
Listen empathetically and validate a child’s feelings
Label emotions in words a child can understand
Help a child discover appropriate ways to solve a problem or deal with an upsetting situation
