Perhaps nothing is more important in our lives than enhancing relationships with our friends, lovers, and family. Yet at some point, it seems that even the healthiest relationships get stuck and resist our efforts to fix them.

In this revealing and provocative session, psychologist Harriet Lerner confronts cherished myths about women and intimacy, and breaks new ground for every listener seeking the deeper truth about intimate relationships. This heart-to-heart session takes a careful look at those relationships where intimacy is most challenged—by emotional distancing or by too much intensity—and offers practical ideas for overcoming these primary obstacles. Enriched with many real-life examples from Dr. Lerner's work with women and their families.

Course objectives:

  • Explore the basic human dilemma of staying connected in key relationships while maintaining individual differences
  • Identify the myths and truths of real intimacy in any type of relationship
  • Discover practical ways to overcome the common relationship obstacles of too much emotional distancing or too much intensity
