Healthy Relationships

Healthy relationships aren't exclusive to romantic relationships. For college students, learning how to improve their relationships with family, friends, roommates, and peers are important for growth and stability as they further their education. Whether they are confronted by interpersonal issues between roommates or decide to join a socially oriented student organization, the various types of relationships they will go onto build can become a source of confusion and stress at times. So how do you create an open space for communication and healthy conversations?

This presentation will meet the following objectives:

  • Students will be able to list the different types of relationships that exist outside romantic relationships.
  • Students will understand ways to manage conflict, deal with confrontation, and diffuse anger.
  • Students will learn about the need for consent and deciding when, where, and how to set limits.
  • Students will be able to recognize signs of violence and abuse that may be present in a relationship.
  • Students will learn about ways to improve communication between themselves and others.
  • Students will be able to identify resources on campus where they can get help for interpersonal issues.
