About the Foundation:
We spend at least 12 years in school preparing for a career. How much time do we spend preparing for a relationship? Any relationship?
The Relationship Foundation (TRF) is a 501 (c)(3)
non-profit organization that incorporates a Social and Emotional Learning (SEL)
curriculum, Healthy Relationships 101, in high schools, social service and community
programs all across the country. We have also written a book under the same
TRF has been teaching its “Healthy Relationships 101” program in high schools in New York City. We instruct students and teachers on how to sustain healthy, thriving, meaningful, and fulfilling relationships with everyone in their lives.
One of the most effective things we do is support students and teachers to articulate their needs and feelings without blame and judgment and to listen empathically. Given how disconnected (or over connected) our society is today, learning this work can make all the difference both in and out of school. The communication skill set we teach is based on Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication (NVC).
We also introduce the Trauma-Informed Schools approach to help schools’ staff to understand that so called problem students are actually kids with toxic stress due to abuse, neglect from unstable home lives. Understanding this, changes how kids are treated and results in positive outcomes. The new approach to a disruptive student is not what’s wrong with you, but what’s going on with you?
We have a book and a curriculum that has recently been adapted as a guidebook for organizations.
