WEBINAR: Essential Lessons Learned in Dating: Teaching the Stages of Relationships

Teens often move too quickly in romance. Breaking romantic development down into 4 specific stages can help teens see the path that leads to healthy partnership choices and understand concerns regarding the choice to “Hook-Up”. Each step in this progression has it’s own important tasks. Moving too quickly through stages or skipping stages puts the individual at risk and at a disadvantage. Making these stages, and the accompanying tasks, clear can help young adults slow down, stay curious, identify obstacles, and avoid potential emotional, mental, and physical injury Guest Presenter: Elsbeth Martindale, PsyD, Creator of the card set and activity book: “Things to Know Before You Say Go.”
