Mind Blowing Relationship Skills for Schools and Organizations
If you are looking for a life changing internship, you’ve come to the right place.
We spend at least 12 years in school preparing for a career.
How much time do we spend preparing for a relationship?
The Relationship Foundation (TRF) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that incorporates a Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum and Healthy Relationships 101, in high schools, social service, and community programs across the country. We have a book by the same name.
TRF has been teaching its “Healthy Relationships 101” program in high schools in New York City for 14 years. We instruct students and teachers on how to sustain healthy, thriving, meaningful, and fulfilling relationships with everyone in their lives.
One of the most effective things we do is support students and teachers to articulate their needs and feelings without blame and judgment and to listen empathically. Given how disconnected (or over connected) our society is today, learning this work can make all the difference both in and out of school or work. The communication skill set is based on Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s book, Nonviolent Communication (NVC).
We also introduce the Trauma-Informed Schools approach to help schools’ staff to understand that so called problem students are actually kids with toxic stress due to abuse, neglect, and turmoil at home. In our training sessions, we detail maltreatment traumatizes children and affects their brain architecture. Understanding this changes how kids are treated and result in greater safety and stability.
