The Department of Human Development and Family Science and Falk College invite you to “Using Movies to Strengthen Relationships and Families: Promoting Mindful-Flexibility within Close Relationships” with Dr. Ronald D. Rogge of University of Rochester on Friday, April 12, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. in Falk College, MacNaughton Hall Room 200.

Ron Rogge is an Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Rochester. His extensive research program focuses on examining the underlying dynamics of romantic relationships, utilizing a variety of complex methodologies, including longitudinal and multilevel approaches. The talk will build on work showing that using movies to facilitate relationship-focused discussions (the PAIR program) was able to reduce divorce rates over the first three years of marriage (Rogge et al., 2013). He will discuss results from recent RCT’s of the PAIR program and its parenting analog (the REFLECT program). Drawing from the Hexaflex model of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as the mindfulness literature, he will also present results examining dimensions of mindful flexibility as possible mechanisms for PAIR effects.
