FILLED – Online “Closed” Healthy Friendships and Intimate Relationships – 6 Session Workshop for Adults (18-40), 6/30/21 – 8/4/21, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM ET

June 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm, $60

DESCRIPTION: Healthy Friendships and Intimate Relationships is an online, 6 session, psychoeducational workshop, and support group for adults ages 18-40. Psychoeducational groups offer opportunities to learn from experts and meet new people in a supportive environment.

The workshop will focus on how to recognize unhealthy (toxic) friendships and intimate relationships, how to set boundaries and what to do when they are not respected, how to cope with jealousy, how to take care of yourself in order to promote healthy relationships, and how to know when it is time to get help for abuse or leave an unhealthy situation. The workshop will also address how to repair friendships and maintain healthy relationships for the long-term.

Healthy Friendships will be co-facilitated by a neurotypical adult; Emily Rothman, Professor of Community Health Sciences at Boston University School of Public Health; and an adult on the autism spectrum.

Note: All participants will be invited to take part in a research study about the workshop, for which they can earn up to $200. Participation in the research study is entirely optional and is not required for enrollment in the workshop.
