Since the dawn of recorded human history, adult romantic relationships have been the subject of intense scrutiny. Enduring scrutiny! Witness the timeless agonies of classical Roman poet, Catullus, who more than two thousand years ago penned these lines: “Odi et amo” [I hate and I love] “Quare id faciam fortasse requiris.” [Why this is so perhaps you may ask]. “Nescio,” [I don't know] “sed fieri sentio,” [but I feel it to be so] et excrucior [and I am tortured.]
Now, two millennia later, Dr. Stan Tatkin solves age-old mysteries about romantic sufferings with his cutting-edge psychobiological approach to couples therapy, yielding amazing insight in both partners — and results.
Stan Tatkin, PsyD, MFT, is founder and developer of A Psychobiological Approach To Couples Therapy® which integrates neuroscience, infant attachment, arousal regulation, and therapeutic enactment applied to adult primary attachment relationships. He maintains a practice in Calabasas, California, and runs a bi-weekly clinical study group for medical and mental health professionals and training programs in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Austin.
In addition to his private practice, he teaches and supervises first through third-year family medicine residents at Kaiser Permanente, Woodland Hills, through which he is an assistant clinical professor at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, Department of Family Medicine. He is also adjunct faculty for Antioch University, Santa Barbara Graduate Institute, and California Lutheran University. A veteran member of Allan N. Schore’s study group, you may reach Dr. Tatkin at firstname.lastname@example.org
