Pact – Psychobiological Approach To Couples Theraphy

Developed by researcher, clinician and teacher, Stan Tatkin. PACT relies on the application of research in neuroscience and attachment theory to improve interactions between couples.

The three core pillars of PACT are:

1. Arousal regulation: The way a human mind and body respond to and manage moods and emotions, both their own and their partner’s.

2. Attachment theory: Helps to explain how people come to form and nurture their attachment with significant people in their lives.

3. Developmental neuroscience: How the brain changes over time in response to both environmental and biological inputs and the impact these changes have on relationship behaviour, from infancy to adulthood.
