“People are complex,” says Stan Tatkin, developer of a Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy® (PACT). “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 simply expect relationships to fall into place, as many couples do.

This workshop demonstrates general principles to help you understand what makes a relationship successful, and how to work toward those principles with your partner. Wired for Love teaches couples about the fundamental biological realities of human bonding and the psychobiological particulars of your partner.

Through dynamic interactions, exercises, and experimentation, you come to understand how you and your partner really work together and you begin to develop a specific set of guidelines designed for you and your partner. The invaluable tools you learn can be implemented immediately in your relationship and will help you create and maintain a safe and secure, long-lasting relationship.

Couples at any stage of relationship are welcome.

Tracey Boldemann-Tatkin, PhD, cofounder of the PACT Institute, has directed several philanthropic family foundations over the past three decades. She has been involved in leadership roles and at the ground level of humanitarian efforts worldwide. thepactinstitute.com
