Dance Me to the End of Love with Peter Banki, Ph.D (9:30-11am)

While death is often understood as referring to the end of life, it is important to remember that it can refer to the ending of anything, such as a friendship, a love affair, a social role, a period of one’s life such adolescence, youth or middle age.
