Students invited to program to help maintain healthy relationships

March 11, 2011

The Office of Student Affairs at Loyola University New Orleans presents “Making Relationships Matter,” a program facilitated by David Coleman, “The Dating Doctor,” on Monday, March 14, at 7 p.m. in Miller Hall, Room 114. It is free and open to all Loyola students.

Coleman is known nationwide as The Dating Doctor™ and “America’s Real-Life Hitch!” He has been honored 13 times as the National Speaker of the Year - 10 times by Campus Activities Magazine and three times by The National Association for Campus Activities. He is a highly sought after speaker, entertainer, emcee, author, leadership trainer, retreat facilitator, and radio and television personality.

“Making Relationships Matter” teaches how to create and maintain healthy relationships. “From the events of Sept. 11 and the devastation from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, we learned that our lives and relationships are precious and fragile and that they can be forever altered in the blink of an eye. With that in mind, relationships need to matter, every moment of every day,” said Coleman.

“Making Relationships Matter” unveils approaches to living a daily life that is fulfilling and focused on getting the most from and providing the most to every relationship. Coleman teaches how to form, mend and sustain meaningful relationships. Attendees will learn how to be more courageous, valuable, respectful, thankful, passionate, committed, spiritual, trustworthy and healthy.

Topics include: Who controls relationships and why; basic differences between men and women; the “attraction factor;” how to be more physically and emotionally romantic with others; discerning healthy vs. unhealthy relationships; and steps to follow to ensure that all your relationships matter.

Coleman has been featured in Us Magazine, Glamour, Celebrity Living, Mademoiselle, Women's World, Cosmopolitan, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and The New York Times. He has appeared on all major television networks as well as hundreds of radio stations nationwide. He is a regular guest on STAR 105.7 in Grand Rapids, Mich.; Star 94 in Atlanta, Ga.; MIX 105.1 in Orlando, Fla.; KLITE 105.3 in Bakersfield, Calif.; and "The Big One" 700 WLW, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
