PACT is a fusion of developmental neuroscience, attachment theory, and arousal regulation and is quickly gaining a reputation for treating the most difficult couples.
Couples can develop secure-functioning relationships by understanding early attachment and its effect on brain and nervous system development, and its influence on current experience in relationships
Clinicians learn to help partners regulate each other’s emotions; maintain secure bonds; and foster positive, enduring relationships
