Building Fulfilling Relationships

Workshop, Fall 2021

This is an 8-week series weekly workshop that focuses on various aspects of relationships. We acknowledge that everyone of us navigates social spaces as a multicultural being and can expand our perspectives to learn and grow. Interpersonal Effectiveness skills from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) can help with building fulfilling relationships. The workshop will be partially didactic and partially conversational/experiential, and will also include some practices. We hope you join us for all 8 sessions, as each week will cover a different topic. You are welcome to join us as often as you can. RSVP below to access the link that will be used for all sessions.
