Wired for Love

In Wired for Love, Stan Tatkin uses what he calls a "psychobiological" approach to understanding couples, based on a combination of neuroscience, attachment theory, and the biology of human arousal. Understanding the biology of arousal, what triggers us (and our partner), and how to recognize and deal with arousal can be quite helpful in reducing conflict and increasing closeness and safety in relationships.

Wired for love includes practical exercises that can help each partner in a couple to understand themselves and their partners. Learning more about how we are wired on a more physical level adds a useful lens to the psychology of attachment and intimacy.
