AACC World Conference
October 9 - October 12
The topics that are hardest to talk about are often those where a bit of new knowledge can make the biggest difference. Many marriages and relationships suffer (or simply do not thrive) due to something as tragically simple as a lack of the right information about what is going on in the heart and mind of the other person—and that is especially the case when it comes to sex, money, porn, tricky family relationships or a host of other “elephant in the room” topics. This session will present a set of simple, but life-changing, factors that everyone needs to know. Published in the best-selling books, For Women Only, For Men Only, Through a Man’s Eyes, The Good News about Marriage, and the Men, Women and Money curriculum, this research-based knowledge helps each person understand where his or her partner is coming from, and has already proven to be surprising, eye-opening, and transformative for hundreds of thousands of couples. All findings are based on 15 years of rigorous research with more than 20,000 men, women, and teenagers, including 10 nationally representative surveys, and include the most crucial emotions, brain wiring, insecurities, and other factors underneath our different responses to money, sex, visual temptations, and other common, but awkward, stressors. Yet, these same factors present excellent opportunities for communication and intimacy once they are understood.
