Life Works counselors will lead group workshops in the following topics:
WORKSHOP 1: Saying No, Speaking Truth — April 18 from 6 to 8 PM
This talk will explore setting personal boundaries. What are they, how do we enforce them and how should we react when a boundary is crossed?

This talk will discuss how we can support survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in a victim-blaming world.
