Happy Couples: science reveals their secrets

What makes a relationship happy?

Science offers valuable assistance in answering that. New research identifies the core behaviors common to happy couples.

Much of this information comes from remarkable laboratories configured as apartments where couples cohabit while observed by psychologists. After just a few hours experts can predict with a surprising degree of accuracy the couples who are happy and the ones headed for separation.

You can apply this knowledge to increase the happiness in your own relationship.

This seminar will outline the findings of this valuable area of research and give you ideas to improve your connection with your partner, such as:
* Regularly expressing appreciation
* Deliberately cultivating novelty in your relationship
* Responding to your partner’s “bids” for attention
* Forgiveness
* Non-sexual physical contact.
