Please see notes sections of ppt for further guidance.This is a powerpoint that I made up for one of my courses..outlines different topics that counselors can break up to create group meeting topics or even workshops. Also, intense relationships can be hard for some teens.Some are so focused on their own developing feelings and responsibilities that they don't have the emotional energy it takes to respond to someone else's feelings and needs in a close relationship. You will be, and you can take all the time you need.The toolkit will be best delivered within a group setting however can be also used during 1:1 work.A lesson looking at healthy and unhealthy relationships, different relationship needs, abusive relationships, changing behaviours and seeking help. But for some people, those rose-colored glasses turn into blinders that keep them from seeing that a relationship isn't as healthy as it should be.Hopefully, you and your significant other are treating each other well. Take a step back from the dizzying sensation of being swept off your feet and think about whether your relationship has these qualities: A relationship is unhealthy when it involves mean, disrespectful, controlling, or abusive behavior.
The lessons eventually veer towards sexual health education and challenge knowledge and understanding in this area.
Some people live in homes with parents who fight a lot or abuse each other — emotionally, verbally, or physically.
For some people who have grown up around this kind of behavior it can almost seem normal or OK. Many of us learn from watching and imitating the people close to us.
If the relationship feels like a burden or a drag instead of a joy, it might be time to think about whether it's a healthy match for you.
Someone who's not happy or secure may have trouble being a healthy relationship partner.
Focus on being happy with yourself, and don't take on the responsibility of worrying about someone else's happiness.
