Healthy Relationships Program
We teach an 8-week Healthy Relationships Program to participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are addressing an unmet educational need: what makes ANY relationship healthy or unhealthy.
Education about healthy relationships gives participants practical information to help them establish and respect boundaries. This program teaches participants the concepts of respect, choice and trust as well as information about identifying and reporting abuse. Our curriculum is based on the inherent value and worth we each possess as human beings.
The Healthy Relationship Program is provided free of charge to participants and we provide all materials and all instruction. This is an 8-week, hour-long program offered once a week.
This program has been adapted from the solutions-focused “Healthy Relationships” curriculum developed by Theresa Fears, MSW at The Arc of Spokane.
