Exploring Healthy Relationships (Grades 6-8; 9-12)
It is important for teens to think about the quality of their relationships with their parents and siblings. As they begin to have more complex relationships outside the home with friends, teachers, and romantic partners, they must be aware of how their early environment shapes their expectations of all relationships. The DVD Exploring Healthy Relationships will help your students examine the nature of their interactions at home. Parents and teenagers share candid accounts of their feelings for one another. Siblings talk about the importance of privacy and sharing experiences.

Abstinence: Choosing to Wait (Grades 7-12)
This program emphasizes how thinking ahead, responsible decision making, honest communication and setting personal, academic, and social goals result in more meaningful relationships and decreases likelihood of teens engaging in sexual intercourse. Real teens are interviewed and engage in discussion.
