To address the increasing rates of divorce and marital dissatisfaction in Cambodian
marriages, a 1-day workshop was designed to enrich the marital relationships of
Cambodian couples. The workshop was designed to address cultural and structural
challenges unique to working with Cambodian populations. The workshop elements and
materials, based on the research of John Gottman, attachment theory, and mindfulness
techniques, were presented to an expert panel of mental health clinicians, international
aid workers, and community leaders with experience working with Cambodian
individuals and couples. The reviewers’ evaluations were collected to help determine the
possible effectiveness of the workshop in a Cambodian context and address any potential
cultural and/or structural issues. Implications for pilot studies as well as future research
were also presented.
