THE LOVE FIX: REPAIR AND RESTORE YOUR RELATIONSHIP - RIGHT NOW!
Tara Fields, PhD, LMFT
All couples argue, but how do some couples get to what seems like the point of no return? In this presentation relationship therapist, Tara Fields, PhD, LMFT, will reveal not only the five most common conflict patterns couples fall into, but also how they can find their way back to a happy, satisfying relationship. After spending more than twenty-eight years as a couples’ counselor, Tara has discovered that there are five common conflict loops that couples fall into and that there are three steps to get past the repetition of the same fights so that the couple can move toward to building a relationship where each partner feels heard, understood, respected and loved. These steps include recognizing the conflict loop at play, exploring past and present fears, and creating opportunities to get in touch with the deepest needs of both partners in order to find renewed gratitude, respect and trust. Change comes with awareness. When one is present in the moment, conflicts with one’s partner can become an opportunity to work through unresolved issues and learn more about each other. It can even become a way to grow closer. Tara Fields will draw from her book, The Love Fix, and share her tested and proven tools to help build stronger relationships, including insight from real couples who have repaired their relationships, self-assessment quizzes to get to the root of the problem, practical 3-Minute Fixes to start using immediately, and HEARTwork exercises to help partners dig deeper in order to reconnect. She firmly believes it is never too late to reignite passion and restore love between two partners. With these tools, couples are more likely to stop rehashing the same issues, figure out what they're really fighting about and start enjoying a happier, stronger relationship today. It is Tara Fields' hope that as professionals you will personally benefit from this presentation and exercises along with your clients.
