Psych Central


Well, as we say goodbye to another year, I have an early new year’s present for everyone — a new blog! I’m pleased to introduce Neuroscience and Relationships with Dr. Athena Staik.

Dr. Athena Staik has been studying the brain, the neuroscience of attachments, and cutting edge tools for accelerated success and human change for over 10 years. With a Ph.D. in marriage and family therapy, and an MA and BA in psychology, her work is influenced by a wide range of psychological models, with an emphasis on positive, strengths-based approaches.

“On this blog, I’d like to share some of the methods I use, principles, recent findings as it relates to the brain and healthy personal lives and relationships, how understanding how our brain and body are designed is an essential part of self healing processes, understanding self and others, and so on,” notes Dr. Staik.

“More specific topics are how to break free of reactive patterns, defensiveness, and other addictive patterns or compulsions, that erode intimacy, fun and passion — how to successfully break habits and free emotional blocks in general.”

Who couldn’t use a little help grounded in the latest science to better understand their partner and improve their romantic relationship? I’m on board and I hope you will be too in welcoming Athena to the Psych Central family! Please visit Neuroscience and Relationships today, she’s already blogging full steam ahead!
