CSUS, 2007 – Adults Who Reunited With Adolescent Sweethearts: A Survey

This article, by Nancy Kalish, Ph.D., was presented at California State University Sacramento, 2007, where Dr. Kalish holds the rank of Professor of Psychology. It was written for a symposium at the university.

Each year, the symposium highlights the work of a different department within the College of Social Sciences & Interdisciplinary Studies. In 2007, the Department of Psychology was featured. Four psychologists, including Dr. Kalish, showcased research on attachment; three of the presentations were overviews of research in the field; Dr. Kalish was the only presenter who discussed her own research.

The attendees were students, staff, and professors from all departments throughout the university, so this presentation was written for a general, educated audience, not for research psychologists.

This article is a good overview of Kalish’s research on lost loves. Some of it may be familiar to you from her other writing, but some of this research is not yet available elsewhere. It includes discussion of her 1993-1996 survey participants from Lost & Found Lovers (William Morrow, 1997), along with newer findings from her 2004-2005 lost love survey of rekindlers. Also included, for comparison, are results from Kalish’s 2005 First Love Survey – a research control group of survey participants who have never tried reunions with lost loves. A brief section of the paper considers some pitfalls of psychotherapy with lost love clients (this is a short summary of Kalish’s WPA paper, offered below).

Lost Lovers in Therapy

This was an Invited Presentation at the 2003 Western Psychological Association Annual Convention. An “invited presentation” is not a submitted paper; it is an invitation to the researcher, from psychologists on the convention committee, to be featured at the conference. This honor is extended to very few psychology researchers, and indicates the high esteem accorded to Dr. Nancy Kalish by her fellow psychologists.

Lost Lovers in Therapy is based on Dr. Kalish’s many years of research on rekindled romances. It was written for an audience of Clinical Psychologists in particular and is a discussion of how rekindled romances are different from ordinary romances. Dr. Kalish elaborates on mistakes commonly made by psychotherapists when dealing with their lost love clients and, in particular, clients in extramarital relationships.
