Characteristics of Healthy and Unhealthy Relationships


Content Source:

Type: Informational Material


The resource is information from about identifying warning signs of unhealthy relationships. It is important to educate youth about the value of respect and the characteristics of healthy and unhealthy relationships before they start to date. Youth may not be equipped with the necessary skills to develop and maintain healthy relationships and may not know how to break up in an appropriate way when necessary. Maintaining open lines of communication may help them form healthy relationships and recognize the signs of unhealthy relationships, thus preventing violence before it starts.
