Navigate Past Relationship Problems With Gary Reiss

Navigate Past Relationship Problems With Gary ReissWhat’s the most prevalent reason for damaging problems in relationships? As smart as many of you are, I really doubt you’ll guess the one cited by Dr. Gary Reiss recently in our Living 4D conversation.

Based on his experience as a master of process-oriented psychology, Gary believes many of our social problems stem from an unconscious use of rank and power.
