RELATIONSHIPS (AND BREAK-UPS): DISMANTLED
Use it to
Why are some relationships so fulfilling, and others so damaging? Why do do we feel so heart-broken when they don't work out? Humans are social creatures who crave connection with others. When these relationships work, they help us find meaning and purpose, and shape who we are. But what happens when they go wrong? The consequences can be emotionally, psychologically and physically devastating. Join Dr Veronica Lamarche, psychologist & lecturer, for an open minded look at our need for togetherness, dismantling common ideas around relationships and why they're so essential to our very existence.
What differentiates a "good" relationship from a "bad" one? How can people leverage these insights to achieve more satisfying relationships? Balancing the trade-offs between "good" and "bad", "risk" and "reward" in relationships are essential for maximising all that relationships can offer.
Despite a general desire to connect, not everyone is willing or able to risk the vulnerability that most lasting relationships require. In this talk, Dr Veronica Lamarche, from the Department of Psychology at the University of Essex, will discuss the features that distinguish flourishing relationships from ones that are likely to flounder, the individual differences that make balancing risk in relationships easier for some and more challenging for others, and what happens when the uncertainty of it all becomes too much.
