The Anatomy of
Intimacy conference is a large, multiple faculty, two-day conference
held every other year, co-sponsored by the UCI Department of Psychiatry
and in collaboration with the Lifespan Learning Institute. The intention
of the series is to explore contemporary relationships through the
interdisciplinary lens of couples therapy, attachment theory, psychology,
interpersonal neurobiology and affective neuroscience. Each conference
chooses a main theme and convenes the best and brightest clinicians
and researchers in the world to present their work and dialogue with
fundamental questions we are always asking is how clinicians can best
help couples who are having difficulty making and maintaining connections?
What new information from 21st century scientific research and practice
is available that can facilitate the process of relationship development
and repair? What are the most effective treatment models that can
aid couples in sustaining intimacy over time?
intense conference format allows for a more comprehensive exploration
of current themes in couples and family therapy. It also enables us
to bring you a number of experts on the topic that encourages the
expansion of ideas as well as the integration of science and practice.
This conference grants 14 hours of continuing education credit.
