Living with an emotionally absent partner can be overwhelming. Constantly combating outright hostility or overcoming subtle distance can leave you with the sense that the give-and-take in your relationship has disappeared. But, with the right tools, even the most broken relationship can be reinvigorated.

Through her new book, If We're Together, Why Do I Feel So Alone: How to Build Intimacy with and Emotionally Unavailable Partner, today's special guest, Harvard University clinical psychologist Dr. Holly Parker, rescues readers from the desperate, hopeless feelings that have come to define their relationship and their lives. Offering numerous relatable and compassionate stories, as well as a practical and systematic program based on neuroscientific studies on how our brains are affected by physical contact, trauma, verbal expressiveness, non-verbal cues, etc., this guide provides readers with the tools to confront the crucial issues undermining their ailing and emotionally-starved relationships.

Dr. Parker will be discussing:

  • How to identify unavailable personality types, such as the Critic, the Sponge, the Iceberg, the Emotional Silencer, and the Defender.
  • How to eliminate habits that trigger self-sabotaging behavior.
  • How to set realistic goals for relationships
