Sue Johnson, EdD
Leading Edge Seminars
7:30 pm to 9:30 pm, Royal Ontario Museum
Spend an evening with master couple therapist, international speaker and relationship pioneer, Sue Johnson, and discover how the science of bonding can help you resolve the dramas that leave us lonely in love and shape the loving connection that makes us stronger and more alive.
At last we have cracked the code of romantic love – it is no longer a fairy tale. Sue invites you to imagine that love is now an open book where lovers can learn to help each other step out of distance and tidal wave fights, where they can feel confident and clear about what they and their partner need to feel secure, and where they can fall in love again and again over a lifetime.
In a world of fast hook-ups and cynicism about love, we all need a map to heartfelt connection.
Bonding science has already transformed how we see and parent our children. Now this science offers us a guide to the key conversations – the vibrant emotional responsiveness that defines the quality of lasting love relationships. Sue will share the conclusions from 30 years of research on relationship repair in the Canadian Couples lab in Ottawa and show you how hundreds of distressed couples have transformed their relationships. She will lay out the dialogues that make predictable ‘happy ever after’ possible. These dialogues are structured by millions of years of evolution that have wired our nervous systems to seek and reach for precious others who will come when we call – who are there when we are vulnerable.
In our lonely world this is nothing short of a revolution. Bonding science offers us the way home to the safe and sound love we all need. It is changing the face of love in the 21st century!
