Identity Navigation for Interpersonal Relationships: Creating sustainable, emotionally resilient, equitable personal relationships Semester Course - Best for those who live in the City of Pittsburgh and surrounding suburbs and rural communities. 2019 Dates (Meets on third Tuesday of the month from 6-9pm; ticket includes attendance to all four dates) February 19th, 2019March 19th 2019 April 16th, 2019May 21st, 2019 Class Description: Each individual's identity consists of not merely who we believe ourselves to be but how others view us. Both perceptions impact how we move through the world. Unfortunately, most of us have allowed society to dictate this and have spent little time thinking or processing what our identity holds for us. The more we become aware of our own identity, the greater our opportunity to develop compassion and empathy for others. In this course, participants will learn how to navigate who they are and begin to process what this means in their everyday life. We will learn what the practice of undoing oppression looks like for us as individuals as well as in our relationships. Relationships closest to us are mirrors of ourselves and the most challenging places for us to create equity and learn to recognize how we have internalized societal messaging. This course is about navigating these complexities through a process of admittance and accountability.
