USF Florence Italy Study Abroad Program Gets Intimate with Relationships
What better location than Florence Italy to take an Intimate Relationships course? The course, which is taught by Rick Weinberg, PhD, Associate Professor in the USF Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling Program, is part of the USF in Florence Summer Study Abroad Program. One of the most popular among USF's approximately three-dozen summer study abroad programs, Florence surrounds students with incomparable art, architecture, ambiance and unique cuisine that have made it famous for centuries. Eighteen students took part in this summer's course which examined what love is, why people are attracted to one another, how people fall in love, then maintain or fail to maintain these relationships, how to survive with self-esteem intact when a person is dumped, why some partners cheat, how the bitter wounds of infidelity can heal, and what successful couples do to repair and improve their intimate relationships over time.
