Professional Development: Training for teachers, administrators, and organizations

Our Teacher Training Program instructs educators on how to incorporate Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) competencies into their classrooms. It provides a detailed curriculum, including instructions and exercises, that prepare them to teach Healthy Relationships 101 to their students. A key aspect of the program focuses on learning how to express one's needs and feelings without blame and judgment and to listen empathically.  

Through this training, educators learn communication skills and practices that foster the students’ ability to engage in healthy inter-relating. It also provides teachers with insight into their students’ needs and feelings with particular emphasis on how modern culture affects their relationships and self-esteem.

This program includes printed materials, handouts, and resources that promote respectful communication skills and behavior. These skills benefit communication between students, parents, administrators, and fellow teachers.

We also work with various organizations that serve communities in need. Training is available for professionals in social service agencies and organizations. The Relationship Foundation has provided training and resources to mental health providers, social workers, and prison counselors. Our guidebook based on our curriculum has found its way into domestic violence shelters, mental health clinics, and drug rehab centers. Our guidebook is now in use at a victim advocacy center at an army base in Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

We equip facilitators with communication skills through these workshops, enabling them to motivate and engage their clients in new and more productive ways.
