Practicing what they
preach & teach:

Dr. Galician’s Prescriptions©
(Rxs)
for Getting Real About Romance

NOTE: BEFORE you view my Prescriptions©,
take my Dr. FUN's Mass Media Love Quiz©.
Doing so will put these Prescriptions© (Rxs) into a proper perspective for you.

 

To help you empower yourself by getting REAL about ROMANCE, each of the unhealthy and harmful 12 mass media myths in my Quiz has a related "antidote"—a healthy relational strategy: the 12 life-changing Dr. Galician’s Prescriptions© for Getting Real About Romance, also based on my own university-sponsored research and personal experience as well as the advice of other experts, including my husband, Dr. David Natharius.

After becoming aware of the myths and stereotypes in the Quiz, you're ready to begin the unique REALISTIC ROMANCE® process of “PRE-SCRIPTION”—re-scripting or re-framing mythic and stereotypic media models to fit the corresponding Rx and adopting these healthy models in your own life.

Work on just one of my 12 Prescriptions© each month, and within a year YOU will be romantically realistic and realistically romantic — ready to be the STAR of your own REAL-life love story.

The heart of your empowered relationship success is Dr. Galician’s 7-Step Reality Check-Up ©a unique media literacy process I created for you to use to dis-illusion” your media-created unrealistic expectations that sabotage your own REAL-life romantic relationships—invites you to make a paradigm shift from media fantasies about sex, love, and romance to far more fabulous, thrilling, and fulfilling reality-based coupleship. You start by taking the Quiz, which triggers a self-analysis of your own beliefs about romantic relationships. Then you move through the 7-step process to break free from unhealthy beliefs and behaviors learned from the media and to commit to a personal plan of romantic relationship action — implementing the Rxs to achieve the empowered star status of REALISTIC ROMANCE®, which really is The Thinking Person's Relationship Remedy.™
