Human Mating Behavior: An Evolutionary Perspective

Human Mating Behavior: An Evolutionary Perspective

If we all want love, why is there so much conflict in our most cherished relationships? What is evolutionary psychology and how can it provide insights to human mating behavior? Dr. Buss shares insights on how conflict, competition, and manipulation pervade human mating. Due to the content of this talk, we recommend it for high school seniors, college students and adults only. Registration will open 3 weeks prior to event.
