Featured TEDxVeniceBeach Talk:  World Peace Starts At Home with Julie Schwartz Gottman. View video above.

Using the findings from The Gottman Institute’s studies of love and diplomacy, world-renowned relationship expert Julie Schwartz Gottman tries to understand how to create peace in the world by dissecting human communication. She finds that, no matter the argument, successful diplomats and couples are those who listen to each other and work to find a solution or middle ground. As she creates more peace in the home through the work of the Gottman Institute, she hopes to also generate more peace in the world.  For more, visit

A highly respected clinical psychologist, she is sought internationally by media and organizations as an expert advisor on marriage, sexual harassment and rape, PTSD, domestic violence, gay and lesbian adoption, same-sex marriage, and parenting issues. The author of five books, Julie is the co-creator of the immensely popular The Art and Science of Love weekend workshops for couples.
