You’re Invited to TLR’s “Rethinking Sex” Conference

“Do what feels right.”

“Just be yourself.”

These are the most common pieces of advice young adults receive when approaching relationships. Casual sexual relationships dominate the dating scene, break-ups and heartbreaks abound, marriages dissolve, and young adults struggle to know where to learn the skills needed to build healthy, stable relationships.
We recognize a great need among young men and women for practical education on how to build and sustain healthy, stable, and meaningful relationships.

“Rethinking Sex: Building Healthy Relationships in a Hook-up World” aims to inform and educate young adults about how to approach interpersonal relationships in a healthy and meaningful way, with an eye towards laying a foundation for strong marriages in the future.

The conference will feature an outstanding line-up of prestigious psychologists ready to share their expertise. The sessions will focus on what the psychological sciences and clinical research have to teach us about human intimacy, love, mate selection, and friendship and the relationship skills needed to find success in these areas.
