Supporting Alaska Native Youth
Respect for both oneself and others is a key characteristic of healthy youth relationships. In contrast, in unhealthy relationships, one partner tries to exert control and power over the other physically, sexually, and/or emotionally.
Workshop – December 16 & 17, 2020
This training focused on a brief overview of utilizing the Healthy Relationships Plus Program (HRPP) curriculum to provide education to youth and young adults on the prevention of violence through the promotion of positive, healthy relationships. HRPP is aimed for facilitation of small groups (6-25 youth) and has been enhanced to include a strengthened focus on mental health and suicide prevention, and drug and alcohol use. The training covered background on the curriculum, topical overview, various facilitation strategies to engage youth in the curriculum lessons and open discussion for questions on facilitation, cultural adaptions and more.
