Monday, February 10th, Dr. Annie Abram and Ms. Helen Armstrong, will discuss international slavery and human trafficking.

"According to the International Labour Organisation (ILO) 20.9 million men, women and children around the world are in slavery. In the 21st century people are still sold like objects, forced to work for little or no pay and at the complete mercy of their 'employers'.
Despite the fact that many people believe that slavery no longer exists, the ILO estimated that there are some 8.4 million children in slavery or practices similar to slavery (ILO,2002)." (http://www.antislavery.org)

Relationships Matter

Whether it's your child, spouse, your co-worker or the person behind the counter at the dry cleaners, how you interact with others is what makes up the fabric of your day. Coping, cajoling, conceding or just standing your ground could all be invoked over the course of an hour. How you respond can either make or break your day. On Relationships Matter, we will peel the onion, helping you to understand your interactions with others so that you can create meaningful communications with the people in your life.  Join Dr. Annie Abram and expert guests for a deeper understanding of your relationships, how to make them better and most importantly how to make them matter.
