Richard Orton of Austin, Texas spent 10 days in Halifax, Nova Scotia in late April to learn more about the Healthy Relationships curriciulum. He plans to assist public schools in Texas in developing an awareness of this curriculum, as well as Paul Kivel's "Making The Peace" and other selected violence-prevention resources.
Until recently, Richard worked as the School Education Coordinator for the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault (TAASA). Prior to that, he worked as a Sexual Assault Program Specialist for both the Office of the Attorney General and the Texas Department of Health. Having worked for 11 years before that in the rape crisis field, he is now establishing himself as a violence-prevention education consultant in Austin.
Richard was the first person to review the Healthy Relationships curriculum. His review appeared in the Resources Section of the Winter 1995 issue of Ending Men's Violence Network Newsletter published in Austin, Texas.
Healthy Relationships co-developer Andrew Safer and Richard visited with four teachers, one guidance counsellor, one principal, one learning resource coordinator, and two detention-centre youth workers who have extensive experience using this curriculum. Each is using it in different ways, according to the specific needs of the young people in their care, as well as their own individual teaching styles.
If you would like to ask Richard any questions about his fact-finding mission, or about his consulting services, you may contact him at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
