MANTI—A fun and interactive workshop to help families build loving relationships is being hosted by local family therapist Michael Blair next week .

Presenters and presentations will include:

Karilyn Cox, described as a “enthusiastic and engaging parent,” will discuss what it takes to create a “real love culture” in the home.

Blair will help participants experience “Dynamic spin release,” a tool for changing thoughts, feelings and behaviors in about 10 minutes.

Karen Soper will speak on “Seeking first to understand and then to be understood,” from the Seven Habits program she ran as principal at Manti Elementary.

The evening will end with healthy snacks, a question-and-answer panel and a chance to mingle until closing. There will also be free books as prize drawings and entertainment.
