How To Build A Couple Bubble For Love and Happiness!!!

If you’ve ever struggled with love, particularly in your relationship or marriage, then do we have the couple-building show for you!

Today I’ll be talking with Stan Tatkin, clinican, researcher, teacher, and developer of the psychobiological approach to couple therapy. He’s also the author of four books including his latest, my new favorite couples book, Wired For Love.

Today we’ll be talking about building, protecting, and not-popping the couple bubble so you can defuse conflict and build a secure relationship.

That plus we’ll talk about the emote me game, the power of the insula, the orbitofrontal cortex, early birds and night owls, and why it’s okay to be annoying, just not threatening!
