SE to examine relationships

For most, it’s not getting the Valentine’s date that is the hard part; it’s maintaining that relationship in an environment conducive to growing healthily that is often most difficult.

As part of a series of workshops that the counseling office puts forth each semester, SE Campus will sponsorHealthy vs. Unhealthy Relationships, 11:30 a.m.–12:50 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15, in the North Ballroom.

This workshop is intended for any students interested in discovering what it takes to develop a meaningful relationship.

Respect, trust and equality are some of the characteristics of a healthy relationship that will be discussed, as well as the characteristics that are significant to maintaining a successful long-term relationship—effort and compromise, Michael Eason, SE counselor and workshop facilitator, said.

“ The purpose of the workshop is to help participants become aware of characteristics of healthy relationships and unhealthy relationships, to take a look at their own personal relationships and to look at reasons why individuals might be attracted to and involved in unhealthy relationships,” he said.

This is not Eason’s first student seminar.

“ It is one of a series of student workshops that we do every semester here on SE,” he said. “Last semester, I did one called Tips for Passing the Accuplacer Test.”

Eason is a licensed professional counselor and has two master’s degrees: one in professional counseling and the other in education. He has also done some doctoral work in family therapy.

Eason has been at TCC for 18 years.
