Spotlight on Relationships: Workshops, Webinars & More
love In February,  Dr. Lisa Firestone wrote a blog for PsychologyToday on "7 Reasons Most People are Afraid of Love." Overnight, the blog received hundreds of thousands of reads and tens of thousands of social media shares. Soonafter, Dr. Firestone was voted by the public to present at this year's Wisdom 2.0 conference on the importance of love.
Her response at the conference coupled with the success of the blog, which was based on Dr. Robert Firestone's theory around the "Fear of Intimacy" highlighted the universal importance of this subject. Why do people struggle most in their closest relationships? What makes people resistant to the love they believe they want?
In an effort to offer in-depth answers to these questions, Dr. Lisa Firestone has created Glendon's first six-week eCourse "Creating an Ideal Relationship: How to Find and Achieve the Love You Say You Want ." The course started on March 2 but is available to access at any time.

Dr. Firestone also presented two Webinars (one for the public and a CE presentation for mental health professionals) on intimacy, viewed by hundreds of people around the world. Recordings of these presentations are available to download here.

On April 8, relationship expert Dr. Pat Love will present a Webinar titled "Infidelity 2.0." The presentation will highlight some of the struggles with falling in love in our current age and how to cope with the more damaging effects of cultural shifts on relationships. Register now to watch the presentation live on April 8 or to receive a video recording after it's taken place.

Glendon in the Community
With Help comes Hope… A community toolbox

Dr. Lisa Firestone has been asked to return to Carpinteria to hold another interactive community workshop, “The ABCs of Suicide Prevention – Just in Case.” The event is sponsored by Hopenet, a group of concerned local citizens, who provide education and resources to help prevent suicide. 
Hopenet was formed with  guidance from The Glendon Association and the Santa Barbara Response Network (SBRN).  In this upcoming free community event, participants will learn the warning signs, coping strategies and sources of support for suicide prevention. Spanish translation will be provided.
This is a free event open to anyone.

coupleWe would like to congratulate Lisa Firestone, our Director of Research and Education, on a fantastic breakout session at the Wisdom 2.0 Conference in San Francisco. Out of nearly 100 video submissions, Lisa's submission, "What's Love Got to Do with Wisdom 2.0" was chosen by conference attendees as one of the top three, winning her a presentation on Wisdom 2.0's People's Stage. Lisa's presentation on love was huge hit with the crowd of mindfulness and business experts alike. Congratulations, Lisa!
