Healthy Relationships Workshop

A 2020 Dreams Healthy Relationship workshop is specially designed to educate young people in the fundamentals of healthy relationships, such as mutual respect and trust, while pointing out the perils of connections based mainly on power and popularity.

By using modern techniques and training tools, our healthy relationships workshop facilitators will really make a positive impact on students.

Young people begin experimenting with relationships from an early age, and by the age of 11 or 12, during the transition from primary to secondary school, many children will already be developing romantic connections.

As the importance of peer approval starts to compete with and overtake that of authority figures, such as parents and teachers, the risk of young people making unwise decisions grows. Communication is not always open between parents and their children but schools and organisations such as 2020 Dreams can step into the breach by providing proactive healthy relationship workshops aimed at preventing problems before they happen.

While we are able to create an appropriate healthy relationships workshop for young people of any age, from reception up to college and beyond, it is in the pre-puberty stage that the information and skills learned often have maximum positive impact.

Key Statistics*

  • 88% of 13-17 year-olds reported they were in some form of intimate relationship.
  • One in five teenagers have been physically abused by their boyfriends or girlfriends.
  • Nearly three quarters of girls and one half of boys report some form of emotional violence.

*From NSPCC/University of Bristol, 2009.

Healthy versus Unhealthy Relationships

What many people fail to realise is that the dividing line between a healthy and an unhealthy relationship is not always clear. Although most children and adults would agree that behaviours such as physical violence and humiliation are unhealthy, there may be confusion over grey areas.

Mental Health Workshops Was Captivating!

The students were completely captivated by the Mental Health workshops; they were designed to engage the student start to finish and did so perfectly. Each workshop provided real-life examples of how current issues could affect young people such as themselves, and how best to approach the issues if they do.

For example, people have different ideas about what constitutes harassment or inappropriate physical contact.

Through a 2020 Dreams Healthy Relationship workshop, developing young people can explore their thoughts and feelings about these issues in simulated role-play situations, deepening their understanding about what is healthy, what is unhealthy and what their own relationship needs are.

By the end of the workshop they will have an understanding of what is generally accepted as being unhealthy as well as a clearer understanding of their own definitions of a healthy relationship, enabling them to quickly recognise a relationship that isn’t good for them.

They will also learn and practise important skills that they will need to protect themselves from unhealthy and dangerous situations; these include assertiveness skills and the effective use of voice and body language.

Healthy Relationships and the National Curriculum

Sex and Relationships education is a mandatory part of the National Curriculum from Key Stage Three onwards. A 2020 Dreams Healthy Relationships workshop is ideally suited to be run alongside a school’s existing Sex and Relationships education provision and can be fine-tuned if necessary to focus on specific topic areas.

Schools might also want to consider using our Healthy Relationships workshops alongside their Citizenship lessons, where there is an important overlap between how people treat each other in a relationship and the general respect for individual freedom and human rights that are at the core of British culture.

What Issues Does a 2020 Dreams Healthy Relationships Workshop Cover?

Our workshops are flexible in terms of content and our facilitators are experienced and well trained enough to tailor workshops to specific situations. However, some of the more common areas of focus include bullying, harassment, stalking, cyberbullying, peer pressure, sexting, inappropriate language, coercive behaviour, teen pregnancy and violence.

However, rather than disempower young people by merely warning them of the dangers that are out there, our workshops use relevant role-play scenarios and open discussion forums to give them confidence in their own ability to create and maintain healthy relationships.
