Program Description

“People are complex,” says Stan Tatkin, PsyD, MFT, clinician, teacher, and developer of the Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy® (PACT). “We don’t come with manuals that explain and automate the process of getting along.”

Even if we did, we aren’t robots: what works for one person or relationship won’t necessarily work for another. Nor does it work to fly blind, as many couples do, and expect relationships to fall simply into place.

PACT changes everything. Developed based on cutting-edge research in neuroscience, attachment theory, and nervous-system arousal, this PACT-inspired workshop offers you an understanding of the basic principles that make a relationship successful.

During this fun and interesting weekend of teaching, interactive exercises, and experimenting, you and your partner will:

  • Learn specific ways to create a successful relationship together
  • Identify one another’s attachment styles
  • Read body language and recognize triggered states
  • Understand how to manage conflict and integrate mind and body to build a secure-functioning relationship
  • Begin to construct a personalized owner’s manual for your relationship.

Stan and Tracey will explain the fundamental biological realities of human bonding, and reveal the psychobiological particulars of each one of us.

As a result, you will come to understand how you and your partner really work. The tools you take home are invaluable, and ready to be used immediately in making your relationship thrive.
