"We are the products of our relationships, and our ways of relating shape our world.”

(Series 1)

Tavistock Relationships has announced the publication of a new collection of online presentations by experts in the couple therapy field.

Tavistock Relationships’ specially commissioned online lecture series allows the viewer to watch and listen to six authors who have all played a major part in the development of couple psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

The contributors to the series are: Mary Morgan, Stanley Ruszynski, Warren Colman, Dr David Hewison, Andrew Balfour, and Dr Christopher Clulow. These authors introduce the viewer to some of the key thinking that underpins the Tavistock Relationships psychoanalytic approach to understanding couple interaction and thinking about what enables, as well as what prevents or inhibits couples from living happily together.

Edited by Catriona Wrottesley, the series costs just £95 for all 6 lectures (access for 3 months), a saving £55 on the price of buying all 6 individually (3 months’ access to a single lecture is £25). They can be bought here.

There are FREE preview videos of all six lectures, available to purchase or watch on Tavistock Relationships’ website here.

On the launch of this lecture series, Tavistock Relationships’ CEO Andrew Balfour said:
