Course objectives:

  • Define and recognize your attachment style and the attachment style of your partner—the ways in which we respond, react, and interact with others, particularly in close relationships.
  • Discuss ways in which your attachment style has informed your previous and current relationships.
  • Explain how to use your attachment style as a tool to change the way you relate with others, opening the door to greater love and attachment with others.

Shift Out of Conflict and into Connection, Safety, and Intimacy

“Improve your brain, improve your relationships.” That's what Stan Tatkin has learned from his leading-edge work as a researcher and couples therapist. In this complete audio learning program, he merges current insights from neurobiology and attachment theory to help you shift out of conflict and into deeper and more loving connections.

You'll first learn to identify attachment styles—patterns of intimacy that begin in the earliest years—both in yourself and in those around you. Then Tatkin guides you through his proven principles and practices for building enduring security and commitment between partners, family members, and others whom you love. Join him to explore:

  • The warring brain versus the loving brain
  • When your brain's threat response is getting in the way of love
  • How to avoid triggering fear and help your partner feel safe and secure
  • Simple gestures and words to put out emotional fires
  • The power of rituals to build trust and intimacy
  • How to make your relationship a sanctuary, and more

Based upon key insights from neurobiology, attachment theory, and emotion regulation research, Your Brain on Love will show you how to change the way you relate with others and open the way to greater love and connection.


Highlights:

  • The neurobiology of mating—who we choose and why
  • The neurobiology of commitment—building security, the foundation of a healthy relationship
  • Anchor, Island, and Wave types: understanding your attachment style and those of others
  • “Is it you or is it me?” Understanding how the attachment styles of others interact with your own.
  • Experiencing healthy conflict through social contracts, ground rules, and awareness
  • Creating a lifelong plan to continue deepening your relationships

Provided me with insight. Review by Topanga Gal

Rating

This audio book provided me with insight about myself and my partner, as well as other relationships in my life. It was like Stan Tatkin was inside my head knowing all the pieces. I like the author's voice as well. (Posted on March 25, 2016)

oversimplified Review by priya

Rating

It seemed very black and white, without much insight into complex relationships that don't fall under his classifications. It also doesn't seem to include ppl who are quite self-aware + have already done a lot of work. For example, i'm definitely in his 'island' category as per my upbringing, but 80% of what he says about me as an adult doesn't apply: i'm not motivated by shame, i don't become more secretive in relationship but the opposite, i do enjoy close physical contact + do not want my partner to get it in their head that they should 'pull away sooner than they feel' to 'give me space'. i do lose track of time, but i don't think that's due to my relationship style; and yes, i enjoy spending time alone but so does my 'wave' friend who gets overstimulated by too much interaction.

To me, i see island, wave anchor in everyone in different aspects -- at which point the terms don't really have any use anymore.

I also don't like his statements 'everybody's a burden', 'everybody's annoying', etc. It's our perception of someone being these things that exists in reality, not that they are intrinsically so, ie 'we feel annoyed by X that Y did'. (Posted on February 12, 2015)

Love Relationships - How to do it right!! Review by Karen

Rating

This audio book is FANTASTIC! From the scientific data easily explained, to the examples and content. Stan's voice is so easy to listen to. What is outlined is a relationship that I would want to truly be a part of. Stan is a visoneer backed up by sound research. (Posted on December 17, 2014)

Hands down the best relationship book I've ever "read" Review by Niki

Rating

I loved everything about this book. The author humbly starts off by telling the story of his divorce; while he was counselling others as a marriage therapist. This sets the tone for the entire book.

His findings and analysis are based on hard science but more importantly his anecdotes are from the heart. The content appealed to both my left and right brain and I feel more confident going into my next relationship because of what I learned from this book.

A++++ and a must read for anyone who wants to have an authentic and fulfilling relationship despite the rumble of past loves which you might find yourself emerging from.

Enjoy! (Posted on November 27, 2014)

Review for Your Brain on Love Review by Lauren P

Rating

For the most part, this is an excellent, thought-provoking and helpful recording. Stan Tatkin gives a lot of information, insights and new ideas to think about and apply to relationships. The one down side is for those who have a background in attachment theory. Some of what Tatkin discusses is a bit overgeneralised and overcategorised and that can be frustrating at times. I still very much appreciate his knowledge and new ways of presenting information for couples. (Posted on October 4, 2014)

Loved this in depth and scientific look at relationships. Highly recommend for anyone in a relationship, would like to be in one, or for anyone going through a rough patch. Really makes one more aware of how they themselves behave in relation to another person. Really eye opening . (Posted on August 22, 2014)

Review for Your Brain on Love Review by Kathy

Rating

This audio program has inspired seismic "ah ha!" moments of insight and realization for me. I recently experienced the final ending of a relationship where we tried three separate times to make a go of long term partnership but could never overcome predictably repeated obstacles. Listening to Stan's description of the wave and island styles and the perils of one or both partners threatening the security and stability of the relationship helped illuminate the reasons we couldn't make it. Now I feel a sense of hope emerge from the failure and loss I've been feeling since our break up. I plan to listen and re- listen so that I can build the tools for a mutually "principled" partnership in the future. Many thanks to Stan and the brilliant way he's applied attachment theory and neuroscience in such a practical, encouraging way. (Posted on April 14, 2014)
