Haran Sened

Haran Sened is a PhD student in the Department of Psychology at Bar Ilan University. He develops methods to help romantic partners understand each other's thoughts and feelings. Working with couples in one-time meetings in the lab and in short daily training programs at home over several weeks, he examines methods such as providing mutual feedback and increasing motivation for emotional understanding. Haran investigates how improved emotional understanding contributes to the quality of the relationship and the partners' satisfaction with it. His research will contribute to the development of new tools for studying emotional understanding among couples, which will have practical potential in couples counselling.
