Expect Respect: Promoting Healthy Relationships for Safer Schools & Communities
Safe and supportive relationships are key to good health, well-being, and school success. Expect Respect is built on an ecological, trauma-informed model that supports vulnerable youth who have been exposed to violence, mobilizes youth leaders, and promotes safe schools and communities. In this training, participants will learn about the root causes of dating violence and how it impacts young people. Participants will identify red flags of relationship violence, including digital abuse, and learn to recognize early signs of abuse. Using the ecological model, participants will examine their role in students’ wellbeing, learn strategies to handle disclosures, and create safer learning environments for young people in their care.
