Best-selling author and founder of the PACT Institute will discuss how couples can form secure-functioning relationships in collaboration with the Global Glue Project
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) May 15, 2015
Stan Tatkin, PsyD, MFT, is a leading couple therapist, best-selling author and developer of a Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT). Tatkin will lead a discussion on his unique approach to couple therapy and how couples can become secure-functioning – a term Tatkin coined to describe relationships that are based in mutuality, respect and sensitivity. Tatkin’s Global Glue Talk will take place at 8 p.m. Friday, May 29, at Shine Restaurant, 2027 13th St, in Boulder, CO.
The PACT Institute, which Tatkin founded with his wife Tracey Boldemann-Tatkin, provides workshops, education sessions and learning materials to therapists and clinical practitioners with an innovative form of therapy that can transform even the most challenging relationships. Tatkin’s PACT techniques, which have a reputation for transforming damaged relationships, are informed by more than 30 years of research in three key areas: neuroscience, human arousal and attachment theory.
“The Global Glue Talks provide a positive environment for folks to come together to talk about love and relationships,” said Dr. Tatkin. “I’m very happy to collaborate with the Global Glue Project to share PACT’s unique approach to couple therapy as part of this noble endeavor.”
The Tatkins first came to be involved with the Global Glue Project in 2014. The two were featured in a mini-documentary style interview as a Global Glue couple. The couple offered up an intimate look into their 14-year marriage and shared how they manage one another’s idiosyncrasies. The Tatkins also shared personal experiences that had initially drawn them to one another and explained how they tend to their relationship every day to keep it thriving.
“The Global Glue Project has a mission that is very much aligned with the PACT Institute in that both organizations really want to support relationships in a positive, nurturing and educational way. We are very proud to participate again with the Global Glue Project with this talk in Boulder,” said Boldemann-Tatkin.
The Global Glue Project was founded by a brother-sister team whose great-grandparents were married for nearly 75 years. After witnessing the climate of marriage change drastically over the years, the pair decided to begin filming couples from across the globe in the effort to identify the “glue” that keeps their relationship together. To date, the Global Glue Project has filmed more than 50 couples from the United States, China, Denmark, South Korea, India, Japan, Russia and Romania. The organization holds Glue Talks throughout the year featuring relationship specialists and experts to lead discussions on various topics to promote thought-provoking discussion on the dynamics of relationships.
