In a series of landmark studies, researchers have identified exactly
what people who succeed in intimate relationships do differently
than those who fail. They discovered a core set of emotional habits
that are so powerfully positive that, when people have them, they
end up having satisfying long-term relationships over 90% of the
time. This four-week course involves an exploration of the core set
of emotional habits that are needed to succeed in a love
relationship. You’ll learn how people who get their partners to treat
them well go about doing it.
This seminar is packed with cutting-edge information and
practical methods for improving relationships. Come with a partner
or by yourself. Either way, you'll leave with a new understanding
of what it takes to make an intimate relationship work.
