- Service Description
Positive Relationships is a one hour session which aims to increase student’s knowledge, skill base and capacity to make rational and informed choices in regards to relationships. We explore the qualities of good relationships, what can go wrong, self-esteem and positive techniques to resolve relationship issues.
This workshop also provides information on internet safety when using social media, smart phone apps and live streaming games. NSPCC visual resources are used to demonstrate negative consequences of over sharing online or forming relationships via online communications.
There is a discussion surrounding personal safety which makes clear distinctions between ‘appropriate’ and ‘inappropriate’ behaviour and how to assert our personal boundaries and deal with situations that make us feel uncomfortable.
The concept of ‘secrets v’s surprises’ investigates the important difference between a secret that may never be told and a surprise which is information that will be shared eventually. Pupils are advised to always share a secret with a trusted adult.
Positive Relationships also evaluates the influence of peers on behaviour and attitudes and generates discussion around morals and values and bullying.
This workshop involves use of group discussion, relationship mapping exercise, scenario cards and a highly visual PowerPoint Presentation.

Positive Health is a pragmatic organisation that listens to the needs of the schools and youth groups it works with. Therefore, after discussion with learning leaders, workshops may be adapted according to the specific learning needs of students, with elements being added, expanded on or removed, as appropriate.
All workshops are an hour long, unless otherwise stated, although can be extended with additional activities or shorted to fit lesson times.
The workshops provide the following benefits:
- examines power and consent in relationships and keeping relationships positive and healthy - consent, respect and self-esteem
