Healthy Relationship Education

One of the best ways to prevent domestic abuse is to talk to about what it takes to create and maintain healthy relationships. So, we offer a number of interactive presentations that teach children and youth the skills they need to participate in – and seek out – healthy relationships.

We explore…

  • Healthy relationships. We help students define healthy and unhealthy behaviors and encourage them to examine expectations for their own relationships.
  • Dating abuse. We help youth identify warnings signs and abusive behaviors as well as how to help a friend and access available resources.
  • Personal safety. We encourage youth to identify who they’d reach out to if something was wrong and to help them identify situations where they may need to reach out.
  • Gender roles and stereotypes. We explore the expectations around the gender-specific roles society so often expects within our intimate relationships and the intended and unintended consequences of these roles.
  • Communication skills. We address effective and respectful communication skills and help youth think about how to use these skills in their own relationships.
