“I want some more love.” This is the core need of every human being, though often unspoken. To love well doesn’t require special qualifications, training, or personality to serve individuals in care communities. Perhaps the answer isn't in what we know, but in the state of our being as we aim to better love and care for every person we are privileged to serve. Kareen King, a Registered Drama Therapist, offers encouragement through specific narratives in connecting with those most in need of our loving service.

3:50- 4:00 PM Wrap up
