Training Description

Romantic relationships might bring up a variety of responses for system-involved youth, from

excitement to fear and anything in between. Romantic relationships have the potential to evoke

your deepest insecurities, vulnerabilities, and fears. They are also powerful places to grow,

transform, and inspire. Young people often receive messages about romantic relationships from the

media, movies, and the other adults in their lives. Especially for system-involved youth and other

marginalized youth, they may have unhealthy experiences of romantic relationships. In this course

we will explore how to support young people in approaching romantic relationships from a place of

self-love, mindfulness, and empowerment.

Learning Objectives

of empowerment, mindfulness, and self love
