BFFs: The science of building friendships that last

There’s a cottage industry of books written about finding and keeping a mate, but not nearly as many about finding and keeping friends. Marisa G. Franco is a professor at the University of Maryland who also writes for Psychology Today. She joins host Krys Boyd to discuss the latest science on friendship, why it’s essential to our health, and ways to use your own strengths to forge lasting relationships. Her book is called “Platonic: How the Science of Attachment Can Help You Make  and Keep – Friends.”
