Wired for Relationships: How Brain, Body and Relationships Interact and Change Each Other

  • Oak Hills Church 1100 Blue Ravine Road Folsom, CA, 95630 United States (map)

Relationship is the central organizing reality for humans – we begin life through relationship; our brain structures are designed for relationship; and the greatest opportunities for personal transformation come through relationship.

This interactive and high-energy workshop provides new tools for healthy relationships by exploring the role of the physical brain in relationships – and the ways that your brain operates in relationships may surprise you:

  • What recent research in neurobiology tells us about how relationships can optimize your brain
  • What are “relational circuits”? – the nuts and bolts of relationship operating systems
  • Head vs. heart vs. gut – who runs the show? Do they work together?
  • The roles of survival instincts, desires, and coping mechanisms
  • Situations where “problem solving” mode can hinder progress

Integrating findings from new studies in neurobiology as they relate to human behavior, this workshop will give participants powerful new tools that are immediately useful and improve relationships:

  • 3 key relational skills and how to cultivate them
  • Increased understanding of why you get stuck – and how to get unstuck
  • Ways to recognize when you are “offline” in relationship and how to recover

This workshop is led by Evey DeRoos*, a licensed marriage and family therapist practicing in the Sacramento CA region.
