Newsletter: Week of September 25, 2017

From the Program Director

Sarah Chandonnet

We all experience moments when we feel isolated and alone. A 2006 Purdue University study found that twenty-five percent of Americans cannot name a single person they feel close to. Yet every single one of us is hardwired for close relationships. The key to more satisfying relationships -- be it with a significant other, a family member, or a colleague -- is to strengthen the neural pathways in our brains that encourage closeness and connection.
This Sunday, join us for a conversation with Dr. Amy Banks, Director of Advanced Training at the Jean Baker Miller Center for Relational Growth, and aut hor of  Wired to Connect: The Surprising Link Between Brain Science and Strong, Healthy Relationships . She is a national speaker on the neuroscience of relationship and a psychiatrist with a practice in Lexington, MA.
