Stanley Tatkin, PsyD, MFT,
is a clinician, researcher, teacher, and developer of A Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy® (PACT). PACT is a fusion of neuroscience, attachment theory, and arousal regulation. His books, Love and War and Wired for Love, are about his approach to couples.
“There is perhaps nothing more difficult than another person,” says Stan Tatkin, clinician, researcher, teacher, and developer of A Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy®. “People are complex to be sure, and they never come with manuals that automate the process of getting along with them. And even if we did have general manuals, we aren't robots. What works for one person won’t necessarily work for another. But neither does it work to fly blind, as many couples do, and expect relationships to simply fall into place.
