Leslie will present concepts from the Circles Program for an hour and allow 15 minutes for questions. The Circles Program teaches social distance and levels of intimacy through the use of six color-coded concentric circles. Starting from the center circle, which represents the self, each new colored circle represents behaviors, feelings, and actions appropriate to the distance from the center of self. Circles was written by Leslie Walker-Hirsch ,Med, Marklyn Champagne, RN, MSW and James Stanfield, EDD.
