This article provides an overview on the possible significance of neurobiological processes for the unfolding of the constructive power of personcentered relationships. This is done by using five impact factors: security, trust, interpersonal synchrony, verbally mediated emotion regulation and dialogical exploration of expe riences. It will be demonstrated how these impact factors have a profound influence on the vegetative nervous system, neuroche micals like oxytocin, neural coupling, emotion regulating neural structures, and the interhemispheric information transfer. Hereby, it is assumed that neurobiological processes in these areas may accompany and facilitate the interaction within the relationship as well as longterm development of the involved persons.
