Conflict: there’s no way around it if you want emotional intimacy. Why do happy couples have more conflict than those who are struggling? What do partners tend to argue about? And what form does the conflict take? Most of all—are the more effective ways of communicating learnable—and applicable to many kinds of relationships? In this talk, Dr. Duana Welch ’91 will present a science-based perspective on all these topics and more.
