Four Hours Continuing Education

Every therapist and every client is somehow concerned with the questions:  “Why does romance fade over time, and what can we do about it?   Relationship psychologists, neuropsychologists, and anthropologists have devoted the last decade to the study of these questions with never before available research tools.

The data suggests that we are essentially a serially monogamous special with an extraordinary capacity for carving out new destinies for ourselves.  How can we come to grips with our genetic and neurological heritage while simultaneously transcending our basic natures in order to create and sustain exciting romance and nurture love in long-term relationships?  This course surveys research and theory suggesting that indeed we have promising possibilities.
