About this course
In this course, Dr. Justin Coulson (Happy Families) introduces Ross Greene’s notions of collaborative productive solutions and demonstrates how he integrates Greene’s thought with that of Gottman. The RULER and Mood Meter are explained as tools for understanding our own and others’ emotions. Coulson also gives examples of how we can attempt to distinguish between several sets of similar emotions. Gottman’s emotion coaching questions are presented and Coulson further demonstrates how Gottman’s notions of turn away, turn against, and turn toward work in situations with emotional people.
