Family Tree offers workshops for middle to high-school aged youth. Some of our class offerings include:
Healthy Relationships 101
Young love can be exciting, but exploring new relationships can also be confusing. In this session, we’ll talk about what a healthy relationship looks like, as well as what behaviors are unhealthy and even abusive. We’ll talk about how to recognize red flags in your relationships and how to set up boundaries to make sure yours stays healthy.
Healthy Digital Relationships
As relationships play out online, it can be hard to know where the line between healthy and unhealthy falls. In this session, we’ll talk about what a healthy digital relationship looks like, as well as what behaviors are unhealthy and even abusive. We’ll look at how to recognize red flags and how to set boundaries to make sure yours stays healthy.
In Their Shoes: Teens and Dating Violence
Designed with the classroom in mind, In Their Shoes is an engaging way to talk about dating abuse and healthy relationships. Participants become one of six characters based on the experiences of real teens. They make choices about their relationships and move through the scenario. This role-playing activity is highly interactive, involving movement and discussion.
