At the Cazenovia Public Library: "Making Romantic Relationships Work: The Research of John Gottman," will be presented by Rachel Dinero, assistant professor of psychology. This presentation will focus on the work of one of the most influential relationship researchers of our time, John Gottman. We will explore aspects of relationship dynamics, paying special attention to successful and unsuccessful relationship strategies.
Dinero worked in a romantic relationship interaction lab and the University of Florida from 1999 to 2001. She received her doctor of philosophy degree in social psychology from the University of California, Davis in 2006 and has since published a paper in the Journal of Family Psychology on the influence of parents and romantic partners on attitudes toward and beliefs about romantic relationships.
On Tuesday March 17, the Cazenovia Public Library will host "Lessons from Malthus (and Others)," by Peter Howe, assistant professor of economics.
