The Relationship Scientist column serves up expert advice on building happy, healthy relationships, from David Sbarra, Phd, YouBeauty's Relationships Expert and an Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of Clinical Training at the University of Arizona. The goal of this column is to translate research about relationships into concrete, real-world examples that have direct relevance in your day-to-day lives. Some of the findings will be surprising; some will challenge long-held beliefs; and some, we hope, will change the way you think and act in your relationships.
