Every person is wired for love differently, with different habits, needs, and reactions to conflict. The good news is that most people's minds work in predictable ways and respond well to security, attachment, and rituals, making it possible to actually neurologically prime the brain for greater love and fewer conflicts.

In this workshop, relationship expert Stan Tatkin shares tools for building a loving relationship. Drawing upon insights from his latest book, We Do: Saying Yes to a Relationship of Depth, True Connection, and Enduring Love, Dr. Tatkin takes participants through a tour of the automatic brain with all its abilities and deficits.

Through a combination of lecture, video, demonstration, and exercise, join Dr. Tatkin to learn about human pair bonding, attachment, co-management of arousal, reading faces, detecting deception, fighting well, secure functioning, sex and love, deal breakers, managing thirds, and much more. This workshop excites, inspires, and provides hope for those who wish to be in a long-term love relationship or those already in one. Mental health professionals who work with couples also benefit from the information provided.

Leave with guiding principles to put into practice and improve any relationship. Discover how to build a loving relationship that helps you thrive and grow.
