This allows them to thrive and improve behavioral, academic, and life outcomes.

without blame and judgment, and to listen empathically.

Healthy Relationships 101 has not only addressed that fact but has done something about it by advancing a perceptive and inspiring book on relationships and teaching the subject in public schools."

    “Given that we’ve discovered how to send a man to the moon but haven’t figured out how to get along any better than we do among ourselves, nothing is more important in these times than that we learn how to form and maintain quality relationships. Healthy Relationships 101 provides tools that all of us need in order to bond in meaningful and healthy ways with others. Especially for our young people, this is truly a much-needed gift.”

    — Marianne Williamson, Author, Speaker, Former Presidential Candidate

The Missing Component

in Our Educational Process

  • What is Relationship Education?

    What is Relationship Education?

    The Relationship Foundation’s curriculum and workshops provide students, teachers, and organizations with tools that support relationships that thrive and flourish. Our work is grounded in Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication, a skillset that cultivates the practice of articulating needs and feelings without blame and judgment, and listening empathically. This fosters greater critical thinking, empathy, and respect which creates a more supportive and resilient school.
