Presenter Bio:

Terry Real, LICSW, is an internationally recognized family therapist, speaker, and author. Terry founded the Relational Life Institute (RLI), which offers workshops to couples, individuals, and parents around the country, along with a professional training program for clinicians wanting to learn his RLT (Relational Life Therapy) methodology.  Like many, Terry experienced trauma as a child. His commitment to leading both individuals and couples into a more ecological and relational world stems from his desire to avoid repeating the patterns of trauma, sparing his children and helping them live a better life.   A family therapist and teacher for more than 30 years, Terry is the best-selling author of I Don’t Want to Talk About It: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression, the straight-talking How Can I Get Through to You? Reconnecting Men and Women, and most recently The New Rules of Marriage: What You Need to Make Love Work. His latest book, US: Getting Past You & Me to Build a More Loving Relationship is a NY Times Bestseller. Terry knows how to lead couples on a step-by-step journey to greater intimacy—and greater personal fulfillment.
