    Another engaging, problem-solving discussion, that offers couples a travel-ready set of tools to improve their LS experience.. Personally, for me, this month’s guest’s approach to couple‘s-issue resolution reminds me of the half-century old teachings of pediatric psychoanalyst Dr Benjamin Spock with his delineation of the Child-Parent-Adult developmental roots to all human behavior, regardless of their current physical age, nor their current stage of development (emotional age). I recall as a young child my own parents’ fascination with Spock’s revolutionary ideas when they were rearing their own children (my siblings & me).

    Another therapeutic breakthrough came out about 5 or 10 years later, in the 1970’s, which your young guest seems to have reflected in her current work, as well. This new body of thought offered a pragmatic means to frame relational cues so that one could quickly interpret an appropriate, healthy response in real time (transactional) without needing to go through the lengthy psychoanalytical methods of that day. If anyone is interested in this topic, much of the therapeutic movement of Tranactional Analysis was encapsulated in the book by Thomas Harris, “ I’m Ok, Your Ok” .
