Workshops

 

One Love: Behind the Post

Many times, what we see on social media is not a true representation of what’s going on in real life. A couple may look picture-perfect online, but amazing social posts are not what makes or breaks a relationship. This 8 minute short film depicts 10 signs of an unhealthy relationship behind the posts.

One Love: Because I Love You

“Because I Love You” may seem like a sweet and simple statement, but in an unhealthy relationship, it’s often used as a tool for manipulation and control.  With these two 1 min short films, learn to recognize when words of love are used to abuse.

One Love: Couplets

8 vignettes totaling 2 minutes highlight the fundamental differences between healthy and unhealthy behaviors in a light and accessible way.
