Healthy Relationship Series

The Healthy Relationship Series explores dating violence, sexual assault/abuse and sexual harassment. 

This program explores the topics of Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, Sexual Harassment, and Gender Images. Programs are offered individually or together in a series:

Healthy Realtionships and Dating Violence:

In this program about Dating Violence, students first explore what they consider healthy in a relationship before learning what behaviors are unhealthy: physical, verbal,emotional and sexual abuse. (40-50 minutes)

Got Consent? Adressing Sexual Assault:

Teens are immersed in an important lesson on sexual assault, consent, laws, acquaintance rape, and more. Our interactive clicker technology allows teens to anonymously input answers for all to see, creating a meaningful and profound discussion. Note: the clicker technology is optional and limited to workshops of 30 participants or less. (40-50 minutes)

Flirting or Hurting? Adressing Sexual Harassment:

This program about sexual harassment focuses strongly on understanding and communicating personal boundaries. Students learn laws and consequences associated with harassment. (40-50 minutes)

Gender Images in the Media:

Through exploring how media portrays men and women, teens come to a deeper understanding of why abuse and sexual violence are so prevalent in our society. (40-50 minutes)


Feedback from students on the Healthy Relationship Series, when asked "I learned...":

...a relationship should be strong. Both people should feel the same way - not one overpowering the other.

...it was really informative and I'm glad I now know if I or a friend needs help, I know what to do.

...that I am in an abusive relationship...again.

...I think it's good you are talking to us at this age. People may not believe it, but a lot of this age group is going through this (dating violence).
