Interview with Dr. Barbara Thomas on Maintaining Healthy Relationships
Watch Dr. Barbara Thomas, Senior Director of Counseling and Psychological Services at the University of San Francisco, talk about the nature of productive and healthy relationships and the key to maintaining them.
In the video, Dr. Thomas explains how relationships change over time and how this change enables couples to reach “a co-creative stage, where you and I together, we’re more than what we are individually.” In a dynamic relationship, Thomas stresses, it’s important to stay honest with your partner and be open to new ideas that will allow the relationship to grow.
Thomas provides excellent advice to anyone in a relationship, but administrators and student health professionals may be particularly interested in using this video in student workshops to teach these lifelong skills for building healthy relationships.
