Classes will include video stories, hands-on activities such as creating Relationshapes’ posters, and opportunities to practice new social skills.

Student will learn how to decide where people fit into the circles of their lives by looking at how long they have known someone, how well they known them and how safe they are with that person. Student will also learn to see the relationship between their emotional closeness to family and friends and the amount of personal space they need when they are with others.
