Healthy Relationships
Curriculum in Action
  YWCA Enhances Juvenile Court Training
Austin, Texas

University YWCA Prevention Educator Karen Hunt teaches an eight-session course based on Healthy Relationships to young offenders. Youth who complete the course and do community service avoid probation.

Karen says the Anger Iceberg is an excellent way to begin the course and suggests referring back to it in subsequent sessions. She adds that the activity on Managing Stress encourages young people to come up with positive ways to deal with the stresses in their lives, including listening to music, talking to a friend, and exercising. She has modified the activity on Marketing Addictions by bringing in copies of Rolling Stone magazine and asking the young people to look through the magazines to see how addictions are marketed. She reports that this session is very well received.

Overall, she said the curriculum "is a concrete presentation of some pretty complex ideas, and that's really helpful to have. What I'm seeing is that the dialogue has begun. It's becoming a consistent theme, which I think is really powerful. There's a lot of potential here for behavior change."
