Best Lecture and Breakfast Series – Are All Relationships Messy?

Supported by Mary Lamm in loving memory of her husband Joseph, this series features compelling lecturers who
offer presentations they love to give, and participants hear the best of the best.

Yes, all relationships are somewhat messy, but that does not necessarily mean we are doing anything wrong! The imperfect “insides” of our relationships are kept hidden. The reality is that only our cleaned-up, best relationship-selves ever make it onto social media and holiday cards. The good news is that there are things we each can do to build the healthy mini-cultures that are our relationships. In this dynamic lecture you will learn what you can do daily to make each of your relationships better — small things that research shows will result in big, lasting (and loving) changes.

Carol Bruess, Ph.D., wife of St. Norbert College President Brian Bruess, is Professor Emeritus of Communication and Journalism and formerly director of family studies at the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minnesota.
