The Dinner Club: Happy Relationships Series
Want to find out what emotions, attitudes, and behaviors promote happy and healthy relationships? Join Goucher’s Student Health and Counseling Center’s four-part interactive program: The Dinner Club. Based on the work of Dr. John Gottman, author of The Seven Secrets for Making a Marriage Work, we’ll study couples’ habits to see what works (and what doesn’t) to help make your current and/or future relationships stronger and happier. Dinner will be served at each session. Discussion and a question-and-answer period will follow each session.
