“People are complex,” says Stan Tatkin. “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 for couples 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, Stan Tatkin and Tracey Boldemann-Tatkin will lead you and your partner through exercises designed to help you identify each other’s attachment styles, read body language and arousal states, and manage conflicts to build secure-functioning relationships. You will learn about the fundamental biological realities of human bonding and the psychobiological particulars of your partner. The tools you will be shown will be invaluable, and ready to use immediately in your relationship.
This program includes $110 additional tuition.
