Gottman Institute


The Gottman Institute is dedicated to combining wisdom from research and practice to support and strengthen marriages, families, and relationships. It brings the knowledge of research to therapists — and the insight of therapists to researchers. This link between research and practice reflects the collaboration of John and Julie Gottman whose combined research and clinical experience is extensive, and incomparable.

Brené Brown

Researcher. Storyteller. Texan.

"Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do."

I’m a research professor at the University of Houston where I hold the Huffington – Brené Brown Endowed Chair. I’ve spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. I’m the author of five #1 New York Timesbestsellers: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, and Dare to Lead. My most recent book was released in October 2018 and is the culmination of a seven-year study on the future of leadership.

"Every time we choose courage, we make everyone around us a little better and the world a little braver."
