After a lot of research into the most effective approaches to couples counseling, I made the decision to incorporate PACT: Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy® into my practice. PACT is a highly effective method for dealing with the seemingly intractable challenges couples may face.
PACT was developed by Psychologist, Stan Tatkin, who combined cutting edge research from 3 fields:
- Neuroscience, how our brain’s physiological reactions influence our relationships;
- Attachment Theory, our biological need for connection; and
- “The biology of human arousal” which underpins our ability and desire to engage in the moment.
Please follow the link below for a description of the PACT approach to couple’s therapy.
