You and Me Relationships Group
WWILD periodically runs time-limited relationship and sex education groups in collaboration with community organizations. These groups run for approximately 10 weeks, and are focused on building understanding and skills in relationships, which help in preventing sexual assault. These groups run at the pace and needs of the individual group members.
Unfortunately due to limited capacity we only run a couple of these groups a year, but we encourage organizations to get in touch if they are interested in running one of these groups. We also have developed a You and Me facilitator training workshop and accompanying manual. if anyone is interested in learning more about his please get in touch with WWILD.
The group meets for two hours over ten weeks to talk about:
• Meeting new people
• Being a good friend
• Safe touch
• Saying “NO”
• Feeling good about yourself
• Dealing with problems and arguments
• What makes a ‘good’ and ‘bad’ relationship
Time: Weekly for 10 weeks
There is no cost for people to attend this group as WWILD is a free service.
