Turning Point schedules relationship seminar in May

CRYSTAL LAKE – Turning Point, McHenry County’s only comprehensive domestic violence agency and shelter, will offer a free community education seminar focusing on building healthy relationships at 7 p.m. May 2 at McHenry County College.

Part of a series of community education evenings, “You Need to Know … About Identifying Unhealthy Relationships” will focus on spotting abusive behaviors and setting healthy boundaries in relationships.

The evening will be presented by Melissa McGraw, who leads Turning Point’s Partner Abuse Intervention Program.

“It’s important to look at your relationship and be on the lookout for abusive behaviors,” McGraw said in a news release. “While there is no such thing as a ‘typical’ abusive relationship, many abusers do show similar patterns, and we can help victims to spot these patterns and take action to be safe.” 

Signs of an unhealthy relationship can include excessive possessiveness and jealousy, controlling and manipulative behavior, and a pattern of isolating one’s partner from friends, family and enjoyable activities. 

“You Need to Know … About Identifying Abusive Relationships” will be held in Rooms 166/167 at the college, 8900 Route 14.

For information, call Turning Point at 815-338-8081.
