Welcome to Neuroscience and Relationships

I’m pleased to welcome you to Neuroscience & Relationships with Dr. Athena Staik.

Dr. Athena Staik has been studying the brain, the neuroscience of attachments, and cutting edge tools for accelerated success and human change for over 10 years. With a Ph.D. in marriage and family therapy, and an MA and BA in psychology, her work is influenced by a wide range of psychological models, with an emphasis on positive, strengths-based approaches.

“In my blog, I share the latest research on the brain, cognitive neuroscience and relationships to build greater awareness and understanding of how the brain and body are designed to work together to support our growth and healing processes, as support us boost and prompt up to realize our best lives and relationships and transform our fears into assets,” notes Dr. Staik.

Who couldn’t use a little help grounded in the latest science to better understand their partner and improve their romantic relationship? I’m on board and I hope you will be too in welcoming Athena to the Psych Central family!

Welcome to Neuroscience and Relationships
