David Pitonyak Lecture: The Importance of Belonging

Register now for the October 21 Mini Course Lecture.

The Importance of Belonging

Presented by David Pitonyak in Harrisburg, PA. A sense of belonging is critical to our well-being. David believes that a source of suffering for many people is not their experience with disability, but rather the isolation that often results from the experience of disability.

This workshop will examine the importance of relationships in our lives and ideas for helping people to build positive, enduring relationships.
