Build Healthy Relationships - Month 3
August 30 - September 24, 2021
We are social beings. We need healthy, supportive relationships in order to be well. This month we will learn about the psychology and physiology of our interdependence and how to distinguish healthy dependence with unhealthy attachment rooted in trauma. We will learn about practices to create healthy attachment patterns with other and communication practices to support us to connect despite our differences.with Suzanne Sterling, Nikki Myers, Kyra Haglund, and Hala Khouri.
Many of us have trauma related to expressing ourselves freely, reclaiming our voice can allow us to not only heal within ourselves, but become agents of change in the service of collective liberation and change.
Weekly sessions throughout the month will take place on below days & times. Recordings will be sent to all participants within 24 hours of each day's session:
