Event description

Description

School shootings, gun laws, politics, anger, blames, action...

Many people are feeling the divisiveness within our world, our country, our communities, our schools, our homes, and within our families. Sadly, we are in a time when family members are no longer speaking to each other simply because of differences of beliefs or opinions. Strong emotions have erupted and walls have been erected between us. Many are hurt and saddened. Yet, no one is happy with these results.


The goal of this presentation is to educate people on how to bridge the divisions that we are feeling. Factors contributing to the problem will be discussed including: The role of social media and impersonal connections; how we view and talk about people; and how we communicate with each other. The solution to be offered: How to find compassion and empathy through our interactions so we move from separateness to togetherness. After all, we are all seeking the same thing – happiness.

Presentation & Discussion led by: Lisa Aranas, JD, LCPC and Susan DeLuca, LCSW
