How to Improve Your Relationships



In this Webinar: 

What prevents most people from being able to sustain romantic, meaningful relationships that satisfy their needs and desires?  What qualities should a person look for when selecting a partner? What are the factors that determine whether partners will end up experiencing love and fulfillment in their relationship or suffering pain and distress? This Webinar helps answer these questions by providing participants with a model for understanding themselves and their relationship. In her presentation, Dr. Firestone illustrates how defenses formed to deal with pain and anxiety in childhood later come to limit people as adults in their ability to develop and sustain attachments. She shows how negative inner thoughts toward oneself and others interfere with intimacy in relationships and how couples can learn to challenge such negative thoughts in order to achieve greater closeness in all their relationships. Learn practical techniques to improve your relationships.

I have excitedly signed up for the Feb. 11: How YOU Can Improve Your Relationships
intimacy-Webinar with Lisa Firestone. I will be joining from Brisbane, Australia. This will be my first experience on a webinar, ever! I was wondering, will it cost me?? (joining in using Mac) I don’t want any unpleasant surprises, that’s all! : )

I’m Interested in learning more about the role of the male within a relationship, I personally struggle with close intimacy and would like to fond out more to improve my relationship with my partner.


Oh no. Did I miss the free webinar? Hmmm… Can I get the same information about how I can improve my relationships in the book “Creating a life of meaning and compassion” or is the information in the webinar to be downloaded only? Thanks for your reply in advance


I agree. This is one of the best I have encountered. Indeed, I am guilty of running from real love, yet opting for those I knew were not real. I guess it was easier to “predict” the outcome rather than suffer the inevitable loss either from me or to me (death). This has parlayed itself into my jobs by way of self sabotage (constantly late); and, failing to live up to my employers initial evaluation of me. It becomes a disappointing situation for both the employer and me. So, yes, I felt the articles were quite illuminating.
