The Youth Relationships Manual
A Group Approach with Adolescents for the Prevention of Woman Abuse and the Promotion of Healthy Relationships



May 1996 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Designed to combat physical and sexual aggression against women and children, this prevention programme manual is based on the premise that the best opportunity for promoting healthy, non-violent relationships is to intervene during adolescence, when peer relationships and interpersonal style become firmly established. The proactive, competency-enhancing programme is designed to build strengths, resilience and coping skills in young people.

Carefully developed and tested in the field, the 18-session group training programme has three principal sections, covering informational, skill-building and social action learning opportunities. The manual provides a detailed curriculum for the programme, which is designed for eight to 12 male and female adolescent participants, meeting once a week for two hours.
