Somatic Psychotherapy SIG Workshop: The Neuroscience of Love and Attachment

October 8, 2017 | 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Presented by: Marc Milstein, Ph.D.

What’s happening in our brain when we fall in and out of love? Why does “love” feel the way it does? How does our neurobiology shape our behaviors when we’re in love? Can love last? Can it be rekindled? What are the underlying brain mechanisms that explain our need to bond or attach to another individual?

This 2-hour workshop will explore cutting-edge, scientific insights on the brain’s role in love and attachment, as well as findings that have revealed some critical and previously mysterious answers to these questions.

Dr. Marc Milstein specializes in teaching leading research on human health, productivity, and happiness, in a way that entertains, motivates and empowers his audience with solutions to live better. We are so excited to have Dr. Milstein return for the 3rd time, as his skills as an educator provide clinicians with current scientific information, in an easily-transferable way to help us better help our clients with the complexities of neurobiology and emotions, including love.

Workshop Learning Objectives

  • Be able to apply new, neuroscience insights when working with clients challenged by the emotions of love
  • Utilize new, scientific knowledge of the various stages of love and why it can easily fade
  • Apply the latest brain science of Attachment Theory
  • Discuss the science of mindfulness as a powerful strategy for creating and maintaining healthy relationships
