“There is perhaps nothing more difficult than relating to another person,” says Stan Tatkin, clinician, researcher, teacher, and developer of A Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy®. We are complex people, to be sure, and we don’t come with manuals that automate the process of getting along with us. Even if we did have a manual, 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. Hence, the need for an insider’s guide to your partner and relationship.
