Relationships are at the core of our everyday lives. We are involved in them from we get up in the morning until we go to bed at night. We have many relationships for example with parents, partner, family, friends, work colleagues, the list is endless. This programme will help us identify how to be the best I can be in a relationship and expect the best in return.

The programme looks at characteristics of healthy relations, unhealthy and abusive relationships and identifies early warning signs that a relationship has the potential to become abusive
