We discuss the strong couplings g_PPV and g_VVP for vector (V) and pseudoscalar (P) mesons, at least one of which is a charmonium state J/psi or eta_c. The strong couplings are obtained as residues at the poles of suitable form factors, calculated in a broad range of momentum transfers using a dispersion formulation of the relativistic constituent quark model. The form factors obtained in this approach satisfy all constraints known for these quantities in the heavy-quark limit. Our results suggest sizably higher values for the strong meson couplings than those reported in the literature from QCD sum rules.
