In this TEDx Talk, psychologist Dr. Joanne Davila discusses how to have healthy romantic relationships. She emphasizes the impact that good and bad relationships can have on our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing, and explains that while we know what qualities distinguish good relationships from bad ones, we don’t always know how to actually create a good relationship. Dr. Davila points out that when we are taught this, it is usually too late, and it is essential to teach the skills of romantic competence before relationships begin. In this talk, she outlines the skills that “create the things that lead to a healthy relationship”.
