Getting to the scientific heart of what makes romantic relationships succeed or fail
Date:2/8/2011

Science & the City teams up with Scientific American MIND to present an event just in time for Valentine's Day that will get to the heart of what makes romantic relationships succeed or fail.

The Neuroscience of Romantic Attachment will take place Thursday, February 10, 2011, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM at The New York Academy of Sciences, 250 Greenwich St., 40th floor, New York City.

According to Columbia University psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine, each of us has a distinct attachment style: anxious, secure, or avoidant. Every human being longs for closeness with a partner, but each of us expresses it differently, he contends.

Levine and Rachel S.F. Heller, are coauthors of the new book Attached. They'll present research that is designed to help you recognize your attachment style, learn how to avoid relationship pitfalls, pick partners based on your style, and adopt secure relationship strategies.

University of California, Davis, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Phillip R. Shaver, calls Attached a "...fascinating and enormously useful guide to one of life's most important venturesfinding and sustaining a secure, satisfying love relationship."

Amir Levine, MD, is an adult, child, and adolescent psychiatrist and neuroscientist. He graduated from the residency program at the New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University, where he is currently a Principal Investigator on a research project sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. He has a private practice in New York City, where he lives with his family.

Rachel S. F. Heller holds a master's degree in social-organizational psychology from Columbia University. She has worked as a corporate consultant and more recently with families, couples, and children within various educational settings to improve their relationships and their lives. She lives with her husband and three children in the San Francisco Bay Area.
