Healthy Relationships Plus

The Healthy Relationship Plus Program, developed by the same team that developed Fourth R for Healthy Relationships, applies the same core principles of skill building and awareness as the Fourth R programs, but in a non-classroom setting. This project targets the prevention of violence through the promotion of positive, healthy relationships. Healthy Relationships Plus is a proactive, competency-enhancement approach rather than a treatment.

The Healthy Relationships Plus Program is a small groups program (6-25 youth, between the ages of 12-18) and has been enhanced to include a strengthened focus on mental health and suicide prevention, and drug and alcohol use.

The program contains 15 lessons focused topics such as:

  • It’s Your Choice – Friendships / Relationships
  • Influences on Relationships
  • Early Warning Signs of Dating Violence
  • Communication Styles
  • Standing Up for What is Right
  • When Friendships and Relationships End
  • Shaping Our Views
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Knowing Your Values and Boundaries
  • Taking Responsibility for Emotions
  • Emotional Health and Well-Being

The Department of Education and Early Development and the Adolescent Health Program offer free trainings and curriculum to teachers interested in starting a Fourth R for Healthy Relationships program within their schools/districts. Please contact The Fourth R Program staff if you are interested in attending an upcoming Fourth R for Healthy Relationships training.
