Peer-Education training Program

How to Exit an Unhealthy Relationship

This program is part of a larger suite of programs designed to educate students on intimate partner/dating violence. This suite of programs was developed with the support of YSL Beaute as part of their global “Abuse Is Not Love” Campaign.

Students who complete this program will be able to:

  • Identify when they or someone they know is in an abusive relationship or a relationship that is escalating towards becoming abusive. 
  • Understand the barriers that exist for many individuals considering ending an abusive relationship. 
  • Be aware of the cycle of abuse that keeps those experiencing relationship violence “in” the relationship. 
  • Identify the potential emotional responses they or someone they know may experience when considering or after having ended an abusive relationship.
  • Be able to safely end an abusive relationship they themselves are in or help a friend safely exit an abusive relationship. 
  • Be prepared to serve as peer-educators on this program within their campus communities.
