THE FORUM   "Family Chaos, It's Healthier Than You Think":
Family stress, family tension and family chaos. We all don't want it, yet we all have experienced it and will continue to experience it. However, what if we changed the way we saw family chaos? What if we treated it as healthy, what would happen then? Join Paul Blount, LCSW a family and teen clinical social worker and therapist to explore what it would look like to change our lens and perspective about family chaos in the Forum at 11 a.m. in the Lower Auditorium, beginning this Sunday, October 14.
