Your Brain on Love

We’re really excited about the work of our friend and new Sounds True author, Dr. Stan Tatkin. Stan is one of the most innovative writers, researchers, and therapists in the areas of love, couples and, attachment, and author of the pioneering book Wired for Love. We recently recorded an inspiring two-part interview with Stan, which we’d love to share with you here and here.

How do we make our closest relationships our top priority in life? What does the latest neuroscience tell us about how our minds affect the way we respond to challenges in relating to others? How can we improve our brains to improve our relationships? In part one of a two-part conversation, my longtime friend and colleague Tami Simon speaks with Stan about these and other topics, with the goal of helping couples shift out of conflict and into deeper connection.

In part two, Tami and Stan explore how two nervous systems get along in relationship and what it might look like to fight well in times of conflict. Discover how either party can wave a flag of friendliness during a fight, core skills and attitudes to get out of any argument in five minutes or less, and the importance of making connections we can count on no matter what.

To learn more about Stan’s groundbreaking work, please see Your Brain on Love, our new audio learning program with Stan, which we released last month.
