The Center will host Taking Charge of Your Life, a relationship workshop, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., October 11. Co-presented by Florida Adlerian Society (FAS) Executive Director Timothy Evans, Ph.D., and current FAS President Geri Carter, the workshop will focus on making wise choices and changing attitudes and behaviors to improve relationships, while encouraging others to do their part.

Using the idea that the life stories of individuals provides clues to relationship difficulties, Carter and Evans will help participants understand the many elements that can interfere with successful relationships; provide advice about how to prevent changes, stress and conflicts from becoming serious; and discuss how to create positive situations by taking personal responsibility without controlling or trying to change others.

Workshop fee: $89 if registered before Oct. 2. Location: 9200 Bonita Beach Rd., Ste. 204. For more information, to register for workshop or to make an appointment, call 239-948-9444 or visit
