Relationships Matter presents: The New Science of Romantic Love: Making Bonds That Last
The New Science of Romantic Love: Making Bonds That Last
Presenter: Dr. Sue Johnson, University of Ottawa
Friday, January 25, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Room 203, The Auditorium, Saint Paul University
Romantic love has always been seen as some kind of intoxicating, mysterious mixture of sex and sentiment – until now. This seminar will outline the key developments in the science of adult bonding that has developed over the last two decades. This science has built on the developmental theory of attachment developed by John Bowlby, a theory that has changed how we view the relationship between mother and child and how we parent our children.
The new science of adult bonding also has the potential to change how we see and connect with our life partners. This presentation will outline the key changes in perspective offered by this science and what these changes mean for clinicians and for clients.
Dr. Sue Johnson, a professor of clinical psychology at the University of Ottawa, is the author of Hold Me Tight.
