Galena Rhoades is a practicing psychologist and senior researcher within the Center for Marital and Family Studies at the University of Denver, USA. Dr Rhoades is a highly accomplished expert in romantic relationship processes, commitment and cohabitation, researching the development and functioning of romantic relationships, and the related implications for children and adults. Her research projects and collaborations include studies of cohabitation, mechanisms of change in couple interventions, infidelity, spouses' perceptions of one another, relationship processes and psychopathology, as well as adolescent adjustment. Given that she works both as a researcher as well as a therapist in her own private practice, she will be able to show how academic research can inform practice.
This will be highly stimulating and interesting talk. Please save the date!
