Healthy Relationship Education Training

Are you a professional working with children and families, and would like additional tools to help couples build healthy relationships?  “We know that children growing up in a home where there is a healthy, stable couple relationship have fewer behavioral and emotional problems and perform better in school”, said Cindy Thompson, a human sciences specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.  “That is why healthy couple relationships are so important.”

Healthy Relationship Education Training is a one-day program designed for professionals who work with children and families to increase access to relationship education as a strategy to meet the safety, permanency, and well-being needs of children. This program uses a research-based curriculum that is being implemented nationally to professionals that they can use to encourage the development of healthy couple relationships.
