Wednesday, April 10, 2013 - 1:00pm to Wednesday, April 10, 2013 - 2:00pm

Ever wondered what to do or say after someone you’re dating tells you they’ve been assaulted in the past, or that they were in an abusive relationship?  Not sure how to tell if your date/partner is triggered, or not known what to do if they are? Do you find yourself wanting to “do something,” to fix your date/partner’s pain, or overwhelmed by all your own reactions to what they’re sharing with you?  Join Jesse Johnson, counselor at Vital Collective, for a short talk and discussion.
