If I am in a relationship, can I still attend?

If you are in the early stages of a relationship, this might be a helpful workshop for you, however, we will discuss dating during the workshop.

It is part lecture, but it is also interactive and designed to be a fun and engaging experience! There will be role-plays by the presenters, video clips, and both large and small group exercises. The audience can give their input share their experiences if they choose to.
