CC16 Keynote 07 - Upstream Couples Therapy: Do We Dare Talk About It? - Pat Love, EdD
Original Program Date :
There is a deafening silence concerning mate selection in relationship therapy. Do we dare talk about what research says works–and doesn’t work? Are we afraid any insight might be used to justify leaving a good-enough relationship? While we all know relationships which defy logic, there are clear principles which can increase the probability of a more perfect union. These and other research facts will be explored.
- Delineate between dating and mating criteria.
- List two predictors of satisfaction in relationships.
- List the strongest predictor of stability in relationships.
