We are living through a global catastrophe of trust. We are experiencing this on every front today, including decreased trust in our economic system, our government, our banks, in wall street, with employers, and more. Most tragic of all is a decreased trust that people are experiencing in their closest relationships, particularly in their marriage and love relationships. Dr. Gottman will review "the science of trust" in the context of couple relationships, including the physiology and mathematics of trust and betrayal. He will review how recent research has led to a precise definition of trust, and discuss his new empirically-based theory of trust. Topics will include how to create trust in love relationships, and how it is possible to sometimes heal from betrayal.
