Course Description

IN PERSON: How many friends do you have? More importantly, what is the quality of those relationships? Health professionals say we live in a time of increasing emotional distance and loneliness. Thankfully, research shows how we can make our most important relationships flourish. We will read and discuss "Plays Well With Others," a humorous, science-based and profound book by national bestselling author Eric Barker. We will question four old maxims: Can you judge a book by its cover? Is a friend in need a friend indeed? Does love conquer all? And is no man (or person) an island? Supplemental videos and articles will be suggested for those who want to learn more. Participants will receive an email with discussion starters for each week. Together, we will learn, laugh and discover new insights into building better relationships in our lives. And in the process, we’ll enjoy each other’s company. | Facilitated discussion.
