Are you easily triggered into conflicts in your relationship? Do you suck at handling conflict? You’re not alone. Once we are engaged in conflict with our partner, for many of us, all reason flies out the window and we don’t know why we’re acting the way we are. Marla Mattenson, Relationship and Intimacy Expert, brings a whole new twist to handling conflict in your relationship. According to Marla, it’s not your fault! It’s your biology! Marla explains how every single conflict activates the same cascade of chemicals in your body as when you feel unsafe. When your partner does something that triggers conflict and makes you feel bad inside, a chemical reaction occurs that activates the “fight, flight or freeze” response – and there goes all rational reason! What can we do? Marla offers practical advice and surefire techniques for resolving everyday conflicts before they build up and ruin our relationships.

Marla Mattenson is a pattern recognition expert who uses her neuroscience and mathematics background to work with couples to transform negative habitual behavior patterns. Over the course of her 25-year career, she’s helped more than 12,000 couples worldwide, including Academy Award winning actors, producers and directors, NBA players and coaches, Grammy Award winning artists, and millionaire entrepreneurs.
