The BOE presents relationship communication, May 1

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. — The Board of Education will be hosting Amy Jacobs in a class on relationship communication on Tuesday, May 1.

From the Fetlife post:

In this course, we will look at evidence-based relationship communication styles to help you better connect with your partner(s). With lessons from “The Five Love Languages,” by Gary Chapman and “The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work” by John Gottman, we will discuss how to communicate effectively and avoid pitfalls. Healthy conflict and repairs will be covered, as well as practical concepts and skills you can use to strengthen your relationship(s). This workshop will be inclusive to all relationships styles (monogamous, polyamorous, open, swingers, D/s, M/s, Relationship Anarchy, etc.) and all sexual orientations and gender identities. Also, I’ll bring cookies!
