Graduate students offer relationship workshops

Need some help with your relationship? DU can hook you up.

DU will host six workshops on April 10 on various relationship topics ranging from interracial relationships to dating after college.

“These short workshops will teach skills that can be used for a lifetime,” says Howard Markman, DU psychology professor. “I strongly encourage DU undergraduates to take advantage of this incredible resource right here on campus.”

The workshops, which are open to the general public and the DU community, will be taught by six teams of graduate psychology students.

Erica Ragan, a third-year graduate student, is co-teaching a workshop on transitioning from dating in high school to dating in college.

“The first year of college is marked by a lot of change and transitions, and this can be hard on relationships,” Ragan says. “We will talk about issues frequently encountered by couples making the transition from high school to college, and ways to protect that love and sense of fun and friendship.”

The workshops are free and will be offered at DU’s Psychology Department, located at 2155 Race St. Space is limited; call 303-871-3306 to reserve a spot.
