Communication in Relationships 101 with Connie Cornwell

Do you have a roadmap for defining a good relationship with your partner?

At its core, we all want and long for secure adult attachment. That’s when partners have total trust in each other, which creates a safe haven knowing that your partner will always stand by you no matter what.

This episode of Therapist Unplugged has it all! Hear more on how infidelity, the birth of a first child, and chronic illness can create attachment wounds that couples struggle to address. You will learn what takes couples under, how families influence the way we connect with our partners, how the blame game contributes to a crazy dance, and why giving language to emotions is essential for a closer connection. This episode is for couples and therapists alike!
