The Relationship Tug-of-War
February 16, 2016
6:00PM – 7:30PM

How do we define the relationships in our lives? Healthy? Unhealthy? Toxic? During this workshop we will look at the language we use to talk about our relationships and why we are willing to give more of ourselves to some people than others. We will also discuss when is the right time to keep trying in a friendship and how do we decide when it’s time to walk away.

Look Up, Speak Up
March 15, 2016
6:00PM – 7:30PM
There are many “tools” you can learn to fill your relationship toolbox to help prepare you when challenges come your way. During our communication workshop we will take time to discuss what happens when communication goes awry – what happens when others either mishear or misinterpret what we have told them? What happens when we share misinformation with others through social media and gossip? Through activities we will learn the importance of being able to communicate clearly with others through good questions and descriptive answers, and how to decide when or if to share the things we hear about others.

Chill, Consider, Clarify, Choose
April 19, 2016
6:00PM – 7:30PM

This workshop will further fill our relationship toolbox by focusing on how to get to win/win when conflicts arise in our relationships. We will work on recognizing and identifying emotions in ourselves and others and how to express them in a healthy way through I feel statements and the 4 C’s. We will also spend time practicing how to establish boundaries in our relationships and stay strong under peer pressure by building strong refusal skills.

Being My Own Best Friend
May 17, 2016
6:00PM – 7:30PM

The most important relationship we have is our relationship we have with ourselves. During this workshop we will talk about how we define our self-worth and why it is important that we feel good about who we are. We will also utilize different activities to help strengthen and increase our confidence and self-worth so we can be our own best friend.
