Dr. Amy Banks was an instructor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and is now the director of Advanced Training at the Jean Baker Miller Training Institute at the Wellesley Centers for Women. She has a private practice in Lexington, Massachusetts, which specializes in relational psychopharmacology and therapy for people who suffer from chronic disconnection. Dr. Banks studies love. More specifically, she studies relational neuroscience, and is publishing a new book with her major findings in the realm of love:
1. It's not actually as important to have a strong sense of self as it is to have a significant other;
2. That friend that ALWAYS chooses the wrong guy isn't weak. A bad relationship reprograms your neuropathways to seek out similar relationships in the future. She needs to recondition her brain - not just to take a good hard look in the mirror.
