The Predicted Stages of Growth in Couples

Tom Habib, Ph.D.

Friday, February 1st, 6 PM Wine & Welcome

6:30 -8:30 PM Greene Hall


For Valentine’s Day 2019, Tom Habib, Ph.D. will describe the Predictable Stages of Growth for Intimate Couples including what is available at the very highest stages of intimacy. Initially we will look at the individual and cultural blocks that impede intimacy before moving onto how it unfolds at the highest stages. Dr. Habib has written

“…the intimate couple is an encounter between two developmental histories attempting to develop a functional relationship. Two people’s highest hopes and aspirations collide with unstructured regression, cultural expectations, and unintegrated shadow, in a visceral experience of fear and anger. Integrally designed models provide a lattice upon which the clinician can sort-out the complexity of intimacy. The absence of an integral framework that can organize all of psychological schools of thought, results in fragments of empirically supported information within a single theoretical silo.”

Attendance with your lover, partner, or spouse is encouraged. 2 MCEP’s available.
