Summer 2017 Group

Graduate Relationship Group

Bryce McDavitt, Tuesdays: 3:00 – 4:30 p.m.
This group focuses on learning how to have vital, rewarding, authentic relationships. We talk about friendships and romantic/sexual relationships, as well as professional, academic, and family relationships. Relating to other effectively and fulfillingly is an ability that can grow through practice. Group members work on improving this ability through the interactive nature of the group itself, and by giving and receiving honest feedback about each other’s style of relating.
