About Dating Violence & Breaking Up
This lesson explores the topic of breaking up - how to know when it is time, how to do it, and how to move forward after a breakup. Through real life scenarios, youth will learn to recognize unhealthy patterns and early warning signs of abuse. Students will work in small groups to brainstorm examples of how to "draw the line of respect". The goal of this lesson is to raise awareness, prevent, and take action against interpersonal violence.
