Wired for Love: A Couple’s Workshop
August 28–30, 2020
Note: This program is being rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see updates about SMC’s response to the pandemic here.
“People are complex,” says Stan Tatkin, clinician, teacher, and developer of A Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy®. “We don’t come with manuals that automate the process of getting along.” Even if we did have general manuals, we aren’t robots: what works for one person won’t necessarily work for another. Nor does it work to fly blind, as many couples do, and expect relationships to simply fall into place. This workshop will demonstrate general principles to help you understand what makes a relationship successful, and how to work toward that with your partner. During this weekend of teaching, interacting, and experimenting, you will come to understand how you and your partner really work and begin to construct a specific set of guidelines for you and your partner.
This workshop will teach couples about the fundamental biological realities of human bonding and the psychobiological particulars of your partner. The tools you will learn will be invaluable, and can be implemented immediately in your relationship. This workshop will help you to create a safe and secure, long-lasting relationship.
