Greg Crosby, Marylhurst UniversityLearn how we influence groups – and vice versa – at a seminar on October 21, 2016

Marylhurst University offers a one-day seminar on interpersonal groups, The Power of We: How Groups Transform our Lives, on Friday, October 21, 2016. This one-day seminar will examine our need for belonging and connecting in our everyday lives by exploring five transformative groups. Participants will examine the distinctive characteristics and cultural histories of the Aurora Colony, Hutterites, Amish, Shakers, and the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (founders of Marylhurst University). A special theme will be on the interpersonal neurobiology of we – and on how we can influence groups, find our identity and build our legacy. Part of Reunion Weekend for Marylhurst alumni, this seminar is open to the public, too. The seminar will be led by Greg Crosby, MA, LPC, CGP. Greg Crosby teaches in the Department of Counseling & Creative Therapies at Marylhurst University.
