I Just Texted to Say I Love You: Teaching Approaches & Activities for Relationships of All Ages

Event Summary

May 24, 2024
1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

CEUs: Prevention, CHES
2.5 hours
Domains: P6: Professional Growth & Responsibility

Description: Admit it, relationships are downright perplexing! Whether it's navigating the dynamics with family, friends, colleagues, or teammates, be it in platonic, romantic, or sexual realms, the journey can be intricate. What exactly constitutes a love language? How do we come to understand the importance of healthy boundaries, and can we apply them effectively across all types of relationships? Much of our relational education comes from observation as we mature and from trial and error as we evolve. And sometimes the people we look to for relationship guidance don't quite hit the mark or simply don't invest the time to mentor and support us.

This professional development opportunity will offer participants relationship theories, activity-based learning, resources, as well as tips and techniques from a 3-decade sexuality educator for understanding and supporting youth and families in navigating diverse relationships. Participants are encouraged to evolve the conversation, bring comments, questions, and concerns so that we can fully explore the benefits of purposeful and inclusive teaching for youth and families.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Promote healthy relationships by sharing relevant theories and employing engaging, proactive, and ininclusive strategies with the individuals I work with
  2. Acknowledge that an exclusive emphasis on abstinence programming has overlooked vital discussions and messages essential for youth to navigate diverse types of relationships. 
  3. Identify 3 relationship theories for K-12 students that are applicable throughout one's lifespan. 
  4. Utilize 3 relationship education strategies to foster the establishment and sustenance of healthy relationships.
