Transient love and lasting love have similar and different developmental pathways. The face of any love contains elements of attachment, sensuality, understanding and morality in combination with constitution, culture and fate. This talk addresses some of these endless variations, as well as the facilitators and inhibitors in one's capacity to love. Participants will be encouraged to share their individual understanding of love during the discussion.
- Describe the differences between enduring and relatively transient love relationships.
- Specify the psychodynamic forces that shape the individual character of particular love relationships.
- Apply the above in their clinical work.
