Event Description

The Couples and Intimate Relationships Topical Interest Network is thrilled to present the hosts of the Attached podcast for an exclusive live recording event of their show followed by a Q&A from the audience. This is a free event, and we invite anyone interested to join, experience the approachable way these hosts translate science into easy to apply terms, and have some fun along the way. The event will have three segments. First, we will talk about pop culture events that inform how we think about relationships. Next, we take a deep dive into a new academic article and talk about its relevance to practice. Finally, we discuss advice on social media and if it is good, bad, or both!

The Attached podcast is about the loved ones we’re attached to and the good, the bad, and the ugly advice about those relationships that maybe we shouldn’t be attached to. The hosts of Attached want to share ways to enhance your relationships and debunk bad relationship advice using science. Their mission is to make relationship science approachable and relatable by discussing relationships in pop culture and breaking down academic research into usable information.
