Start The Conversation
Time & Location
About the Event
Please join me for a very important workshop where we will discuss how adults can talk to the young adults in their lives about Healthy and Unhealthy Relationships. My name is Chris Williams, and I am a Workshop Facilitator for the One Love Foundation. "The Foundation was created to honor Yeardley Love, a UVA Senior who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend in 2010. One Love exists because Yeardley was killed and her death was avoidable if anyone - including her - had understood the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships. Yeardley's family started One Love to make sure that others had the information that Yeardley and her friends and family did not - information about the unhealthy and potentially dangerous behaviors that comprise abuse."
The goal of the workshop is to equip parents, caregivers, and other adults with the tools to engage their children and young people they work with in conversation about the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors, and to provide action steps they can take if they suspect their child (or a child they work with) is in an unhealthy and potentially dangerous relationship.
We will be discussing 5 comprehensive questions along w/short videos and Q&A
1. What do unhealthy behaviors look like? How do you spot them?
2. How can I talk to young people about relationship abuse before they start dating?
3. How do I continue to be a resource for the young people in my life once they start dating?
4. What can a young person do to help a friend who may be in an unhealthy relationship?
5. What do I do if I am concerned that a child I know may be in an unhealthy relationship or is exhibiting unhealthy behaviors?
I am inspired and hopeful that we can and will end relationship abuse if we work together to start the conversation with our children and in our communities. Please join me.
