Northwestern expert to discuss ‘everything you need to know about relationships’

EVANSTON - “Relationships 101 Chicago,” a panel discussion at Northwestern University, will feature a renowned specialist on the topic who will give advice that applies to just about everyone, whether you’re single, in a relationship, going through a divorce, widowed or just figuring yourself out at the moment.

The event is open to the public. See ticket information below.

“Most of us have never been taught what it is that goes into healthy relationships,” said Alexandra Solomon, a featured speaker, a clinical assistant professor in the department of psychology and a licensed clinical psychologist at The Family Institute at Northwestern.

Solomon, Vienna Pharaon, a licensed marriage and family therapist, and Mark Grove, a human connection specialist, will co-host “Everything You Need To Know About Relationships That You Were Never Taught.”

The event will be held at 7 p.m., Wednesday, May 31, in Ryan Auditorium, 2145 Sheridan Road, on the University’s Evanston campus. Check-in begins at 6:30 p.m.

“We don’t understand what it is we’re truly seeking in a partner, and we’re not quite sure how to ask for it even when we do know,” Solomon said.

Solomon, who trains marriage and family graduate students, is well known for “Building Loving and Lasting Relationships: Marriage 101,” an internationally renowned graduate course that she teaches in Northwestern’s School of Education and Social Policy. A psychotherapist, Solomon counsels individual adults and couples and is the author of the book “Loving Bravely: Twenty Lessons of Self-Discovery to Help You Get the Love You Want” (New Harbinger, 2017).

The event is free for members of the Northwestern community when registering with the code NUrelationships. NU registrants should bring a valid Wildcard to the event. Tickets are $49 to $69 for the general public; those who use the promo code lovingbravely can save $10.
