This experiential workshop will explore how various identities and technological advancements have influenced our perception of relationships of all forms (familial, romantic, platonic, etc). More specifically, we will consider the existence of various types of relationships through response art, the screening of two films – “Roots Grow Together” and “Street Echoes” – and a question and answer session.

We will have panelists who are comfortable discussing relational and systems perspective work on multiple levels – such as working with couples, working with individuals navigating a variety of relationships (work, friends, romantic, familial, etc), working with families, etc. We are hoping to have a wide array of identities covered in the panel to provide the largest spectrum of experiences possible
