A Healthy Relationships Workshop Series Created
for Youth by Youth
MODULE ONE: GETTING STARTED, THINKING ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS
Unhealthy behaviours exist in all types of relationships. In module one, youth will discuss how identifying as LGBTQ/2S+ can influence relationships and sexual education. This module also starts with creating a safe space together and agreeing on what that looks like.
MODULE TWO: BOUNDARIES AND VALUES
Boundaries are important to maintaining healthy relationships. Module two is all about personal boundaries, why they are important, and how they influence behaviour. Youth will also discuss why people might have certain boundaries and how boundaries are influenced by our values.
MODULE THREE: RESPONDING RESPECTFULLY IN DIFFICULT DISCUSSIONS
MODULE FOUR: CONSENT
Consent is an integral part of friendships and relationships. In module four, youth will learn about consent, why it’s important, and what it does and doesn’t look like. Through scenarios, youth will also discuss some of the different circumstances under which consent can, and can’t, be given.
MODULE FIVE: CONFLICT RESOLUTION AND ADDRESSING UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS
Conflict is a normal part of all relationships. Conflicts often happen when one person’s wants, needs, or expectations have not been met. In module five, youth will learn about differences between healthy and unhealthy conflict, tips to resolve conflict, how to manage break-ups, and how to safely exit a relationship that is unhealthy.
MODULE SIX: COMMUNITY CONNECTION & REVIEW
Research shows that being connected to a community can have positive effects on youth’s overall health and well-being. That’s why our final module focuses on building community and connection. Youth will learn about what community looks like for them, how to be a supportive friend, and how to identify people who are “safe” to reach out to.
