“Crazy In Love” Workshop Helps Create Healthy Relationships

October 14, 2009

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - What is a healthy relationship...and what isn't? It's not always an easy question to answer, even for teachers, pastors, social workers and other professionals who deal directly with those struggling with abuse and other relationship problems.

Now, there's another source of information for them. Lindsey Godwin coordinates "Crazy in Love," a workshop sponsored by Planned Parenthood of Middle and East Tennessee. It is designed to help professionals help those they serve, explains Godwin.

"A lot of the professionals coming to our training are working with clients who have grown up in situations where they haven't seen what a healthy relationship looks like, and so, they think it's normal for one of the partners to be verbally abusive."

The exercises provided in the workshop can help participants make changes to their own personal lives, says Godwin, as well as helping others change troubling relationship patterns.

"A lot of people who are struggling with healthy relationships struggle, not only with a romantic partner, but also in their families, with their children; or with their parents, with friends."

She says the goal of "Crazy in Love" is to help participants not only identify an unhealthy relationship, but determine the type of relationship they might want instead. For more information on the workshops, contact Godwin directly, at (615) 400-9905. The next one begins on Monday, October 19.
