Community Awareness Series: Promoting Healthy Behaviors
Presentation Topic: Healthy Relationships
Sue Andersen is the Community Education Coordinator and an Advocate at Voices of Hope. She has trained numerous first responders and gatekeepers on domestic and sexual violence and provided hundreds of awareness presentations throughout Lincoln/Lancaster County. Relationships contribute to the development of our youth. Friends, dating partners, parents/caregivers, teachers, coaches and other caring adults are often sources of support for youth. Characteristics such as, mutual respect, compromise, good communication and trust are all essential elements of a healthy relationship. Unsafe or unhealthy relationships can result in boundary issues, bullying or dating violence. Sue’s presentation will provide education, tools and resources as to how to best guide our children and adolescents in healthy and safe relationship development.
Community members, parents and school personnel are encouraged to attend.
Sponsors and Community Partners: Lincoln Public Schools, Bryan Independence Center and Lancaster Prevention Coalition.
