Reviving Romance: 7 Steps to Bring More Fun and Affection Into Your Relationship

This spring I flew from Asheville to Philadelphia, where I attended the World Congress on Positive Psychology.  There I met Dr. Robert J. Vallerand.
Recently, by phone, I had the wonderful opportunity to speak with Robert J. Vallerand, Ph.D. Dr. Vallerand is a Social Psychology Professor and Director of the Laboratoire de Recherche sur le Comportement Social at Université du Québec à Montréal. Dr. Vallerand has written or edited 5 books and more than 200 articles and book chapters, he has been cited more than 3000 times, and he has given more than 300 scientific presentations and keynote addresses mainly in the area of social motivation. In this interview Professor Vallerand spoke on his new conceptualization of passion.

Please give the audio time to load. Enjoy! (My voice doesn’t come through clearly, but Dr. Vallerand’s does).
