Online “Closed” 12-Part Workshop – Healthy Relationships on The Autism Spectrum (HEARTS) for Adults

May 2 @ 7:15 pm - 8:45 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:15 pm on Thursday, repeating until August 22, 2024


Healthy Relationships on the Autism Spectrum (HEARTS) is a 12 session workshop for Autistic adults who would like to learn about, and talk about, healthy friendship and dating relationships. The workshop does not teach how to find new dating partners or friends. Rather, it provides education about what a healthy vs. unhealthy relationship feels like, how to notice warning signs that a relationship is becoming unhealthy, how to cope with a breakup or end of a friendship how to restart friendships with people when you have fallen out of touch, and how to stay motivated to meet new people.

HEARTS is rooted in a neurodiversity perspective and is taught by an Autistic and non-Autistic team. HEARTS affirms all relationship types and styles, all genders, and all sexual orientations (LGBTQ+, poly, asexual, etc.)

The 12-session workshop consists of 6 curriculum-based sessions, and 6 open discussion sessions. Participants should plan on attending all 12 sessions in the series. HEARTS offers a safe environment for autistic adults to talk with like-minded people, share issues and concerns, and celebrate successes.
