Bringing Passion Into Intimate Relationships

In the June issue of Psychology Today, there was an article about relationships based on the psychotherapy work that Schnarch conducted with couples. In the article, he talks about what is keeping couples from experiencing passion in their relationships. Schnarch states that:

“We’ve eliminated from marriage those things that fuel our essential drives for autonomy and freedom…It becomes a trap that actually prevents us from growing up.  Instead of infantilizing us, marriage can-and must-become the cradle of adult development.”

There are many different approaches to couples therapy. Some therapists use more of an attachment approach when working with couples.  Click here for Book Resources on relationships and find out what approach might work for you and your partner if you are loosing passion within your relationship.  To see the full article, please click the link below.
