Enriching Relationships: Thinking About Considering a Sexual Relationship

Where: Link Classroom 1

When: 4:00-6:30 pm

This program will explore some of the emotional and psychological issues that are part of why students end up having sex (or not having sex). Sometimes, those issues are positive and fun to think about. Other times, they are confusing or tainted with regret.

Usually, when there is regret or confusion, the issues weren’t really thought about until afterward because the nuances and needs related to sexual decision making weren’t even recognized… until hindsight brought them to the surface.

Presentation and Discussion Facilitated by Gary Glass, from CAPS 

Practicing Sex Religiously

When: 5:00 – 7:30 pm
