Presenter: Dr. Daniel Paul, Ph.D, F.I.P.A.
People’s internal difficulties in falling in love and in maintaining love relationships are among the most frequent issues faced by psychotherapists. Confronting these issues often involve the exploration of the deepest of human anxieties. This course explores the internal obstacles that prevent people from falling in love. How the experience of love realized can change a life is discussed. Romantic love versus carnal love, willful surrender versus enslavement and masochism and the timing of love and choice of lover are addressed.

- The devouring nature of love
- Love versus dominance
- Characteristics of falling in love and of erotic desire
- Determinants of the timing of love and choice of lover
