* No psychological theory can ever truly ﬁt the unique experience of the ongoing drama of a relationship—be that at work, with your extended family, or closer to home in your own family and with your partner/spouse. There are some commonly agreed aspects that make up a healthy and vibrant relationship—which unfortunately account for only the minority of relationships—as well as those that indicate when a relationship is chronically unhealthy or dis-eased.
What is not usually covered is the way in which your brain aﬀects not only your choice of partner but also the ways in which you then behave within your relationships.
Your ability to feel a loving attachment to someone, the ease with which you can feel and show intimacy, and the sort of person you are attracted to are all inﬂuenced by your own history and childhood experiences. Knowing who we are as individuals, and ﬁnding ways to meet our own needs, and to regulate our own emotions frees us up to have more meaningful, intimate, honest and rewarding relationships, free from game-playing and manipulation.
Most of us didn’t learn anything at school about what relationships really are and how to create and nourish them—and yet our relationships are crucial to our emotional survival and well-being.
If you want to ﬁnd out much more about relationships and the part they play in your life, then this online workshop module will enable you to learn what a good, healthy relationship looks like.
It will enable you to ﬁnd out how your individual styles of attachment and associated brain functioning aﬀects your relationships, and to discover the diﬀerent levels of intimacy, and how to keep yourself emotionally soothed and regulated—which will make you more available to be truly intimate.
You’ll learn how to explore love, attraction and compatibility, and to discuss the stages of a relationship, and the ‘why and how’ of endings – as well as to consider how your own improved relationships will enhance your life.
