SecondWind with Joyce

Mar 15, 2022

Finding love can be challenging, but making a relationship work can be even more challenging. That's why Dr. Duana Welch is back on the show with her science-based tips and tools for relationships.

Dr. Duana Welch (pronounced DWAY-nah) is the original Love Factually author and coach, known for using social science to solve real-life relationship issues. She has been a professor at universities in Florida, California, and Texas across 20 years, and has contributed to NPR, PBS, Psychology Today, and numerous other outlets, podcasts and videos.

Her first book, Love Factually: 10 Proven Steps from I Wish to I Do, is now out globally in five languages; its fully revised  and updated edition released in 2022. Love Factually for Single Parents is the second book in the series, specifically geared for finding the right partner not only for readers, but their families.

All Duana’s books rely on science rather than opinion to help men and women find and keep the right partner. She is an expert for Paired, the couples relationship app. Her client practice is global, via Zoom and other technologies.
