    Love in the Public Sphere
    Christian Harvey | WRCM

    Location:

    St. John's Anglican Church
    99 Brock Street
    Peterborough, ON K9H 2P2

    Course Description:

    Love is often only spoken about in the realm of pop songs and movies, and yet it is what each of us long to give and receive. We are often reluctant to speak about love when it comes to our workplace, even those of us who work in social work or other helping professions. This interactive workshop looks to explore what it is to have love be a part of our relationships with those we work with. How do we build loving relationships with those who engage in our programs that are also healthy and safe? What practices can we implement into our daily routine that allow love to flow through all our interactions? How can speaking of love transform our organizational structure?
