PACT - Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy® What is Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy ® (PACT)?

Wired for Love by Stan Tatkin, PsyDWired for Love, published by New Harbinger (2012), with a foreword by Harville Hendrix, is a complete insider's guide to understanding your partner's brain and promoting love and trust within a romantic relationship. You will learn ten scientific principles you can use to avoid triggering fear and panic in your partner, manage your partner's emotional reactions when he or she does become upset, and recognize when your brain's threat response is hindering your ability to act in a loving way. By learning to use simple gestures and words, you can learn to put out emotional fires and help your partner feel more safe and secure. The no-fault view of conflict in this book encourages you to move past a "warring brain" mentality and toward a more cooperative "loving brain" understanding of your relationship. Based in the sound science of neurobiology, attachment theory, and emotion regulation research, this book is essential reading for couples and others interested in understanding the complex dynamics at work behind love and trust in intimate relationships.

How is this therapy done?
I’ve tried so many other forms of therapy. How will this be different?
The thought of focusing on my body feels uncomfortable to me. How would we work with this?
What is mindfulness?
I’m afraid I won’t be able to turn off all the bad feelings (emotions, physical sensations) once I bring them up. How do you deal with this?
