All You Need is Love...

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

“Where’s Love 101” an event discussing conflict in loving relationships, has been rescheduled for tonight at 6 p.m. in room 168 of the Campus Center at the University of Massachusetts.

The event is sponsored by University Health Services, the Women of Color Leadership Network, the Everywoman's Center, the Stonewall Center, Student Legal Services and the Graduate Women's Network at UMass will host “Where's Love 101: Managing Conflict in Loving Relationships.”

“My general impression is that most of us learn about relationships from the role models in our lives and also from the media,” said Marianne Winters, the director of the Everywoman’s Center. “And we learn the myths, like living happily ever after, but there's very little that teaches us how to live and operate in a relationship."

The event will be a discussion led by panelists, real-life couples and those who work with relationship conflict from the community. In addition, the event will open with a presentation from “Body Politics 2007,” a production created by WOCLN.

Panelists will include: executive director of Safe Passage in Northampton, La Wanza Lett-Brewington and director of the Men’s Resource Center at Capitol Community College in Hartford, CT, Dwayne Brewington; University of Massachusetts history professor Joyce Berkman and her husband Leonard Berkman; educator and director of a program for those with traumatic brain injuries, Jodie Shapiro, and her partner, a teacher and dental hygienist Joanne Gold; and therapist Linda Scott from Mental Health Services.

Refreshments and door prizes will be provided.
