Interpersonal relationships can be the ultimate source of happiness or misery. What are the factors that determine whether partners will end up experiencing love and fulfillment in their relationships or suffering pain and distress? This workshop helps answer this question by providing participants with a theoretical model that integrates attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, and separation theory in a manner that can provide a road map for developing and maintaining intimacy.
