“We are obsessed with love and love relationships. But what do we really know about love? We instinctively know that here is no other experience that will have more impact on our lives-our happiness and health-than our success at living and being loved. We know that love makes us vulnerable, but also that we are never as safe and strong as when we are sure we are loved.”1
According to Dr. Sue Johnson in her newly acclaimed book: Love Sense, love is not the least bit illogical or random, but an ordered and wise recipe for survival. The need for connection is our first and most basic instinct.
Romantic love is an attachment bond, just like that between mother and child; emotional interaction with partners buffers us from stress and makes us stronger in the face of life’s challenges.
Touch and intimacy spur the growth of mirror neurons, which help us “read” and respond to our partners.
A good relationship is the best recipe for happiness and health and a powerful antidote for aging.
Dr. Sue Johnson’s Love Sense opens the door to the revolutionary new science of emotional bonding. It provides you with the confidence and tools to deal with make-or-break moments and weathers the key stages in your relationship.
Dr. Johnson outlines the 3 basic strategies for handling your attachment needs and fears, and offers fresh insight into the link between sex and emotional bonding. Learning how to enhance or repair the bond with your partner no longer has to be a matter of guesswork.
