  • Healthy Relationships

    Wednesday, February 15, 12:30p.m. - 1:30p.m.

    Relationships are a cornerstone of the human experience. Whether they are romantic or based on friendship, they are a basic human need. While it is important to understand what an unhealthy relationship is, it can be harder to define the characteristics of a healthy one. We will explore both sides and push the social stereotypes between men and women.

  • Grief and other non-death losses
    Thursday, April 6, 2:30p.m.-3:30p.m.

    When we think about grief and loss, we usually think about the death of someone.  However, there are many other types of losses (loss of a job, a relationship, etc.)  We also experienced many types of losses with the COVID pandemic (loss of social support, etc.)  This workshop will discuss some of other types of losses and healthy coping mechanisms.
