Our Vision: Supportive Relationships for Everybody

We conduct research, provide training, and offer thought leadership to strengthen relationships in education and in medicine.

We consider relationships to be a vital public health resource, and believe that many of the world's problems will be alleviated when every person has access to excellent emotional support.
