Why do Relationship Skills Class?
SHARPP has heard the requests from students, staff, and faculty that there needs to be more comprehensive messaging on how to build equitable relationships. We wanted to bring a curriculum to campus that centered building healthy relationships firstly on us as individuals. Figuring out our own values and what they mean to us.
"This self-awareness is an important foundation then of solid relationships. In the end, being "in charge of oneself" is the basis for connecting--meaningfully, sustainably, and lovingly--with someone else" (Connie Burke, Introduction of Relationship Skills Class).
Through offering this meaningful series at UNH we hope to, through centering our values, lead to healthier relationships in our community.
Can my partner(s) and I do Relationship Skills Class together?
You totally can! Relationships Skills Class gives individuals so many tools to think critically about themselves in order to build more equitable relationships. While you can register with your partner(s) the class is designed to be taken as an individuals. The content focuses on you building skills as an individual and is not a place to process specific relationships or experiences. The facilitator will ask participants to not group with their partner(s) during group work time throughout the class.
