Casco Bay Conversations is pleased to be hosting its first event: Creating Healthy Relationships on Saturday, May 18, 2019, from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm. This dynamic workshop will address the questions:

  • What does it mean to live and work in the #metoo era?
  • How do we embrace a lifespan approach to healthy sexuality and relationships?
  • Can healthy human connections build lives of compassion and accountability?

This dynamic one-day workshop, hosted by Casco Bay Conversations, is for those who want to see healthy organizations, communities, families, and individuals flourish. All who are passionate about justice, counseling, and human resources will find this workshop illuminating.
