Why kids need relationships to be "right." The research. 

Research being conducted at Search Institute is demonstrating that when young people experience relationships with adults that are characterized by five essential elements, their outcomes are significantly better in a wide range of areas – from mastering social and emotional skills to succeeding in school. Studies also show that risk behaviors such as drinking, smoking, and fighting are decreased.

Getting Relationships Right will put you on the path to creating a relationship-rich environment that will enable all young people to thrive.

The workshop prepares participants to return to their schools and programs to lead professional development and organizational improvement sessions to help staff build developmental relationships. Leaders will leave the workshop with:

What will Getting Relationships Right help me do? 

We'll give you detailed instructions for professional development that helps staff strengthen relationships.

Instructions

You'll be provided with PowerPoint presentations that facilitators can use to guide staff through professional development and organizational improvement sessions. The PowerPoint presentations all feature detailed notes that help facilitators inform and engage participants in the content of the module.

You'll receive The Leader's Guide to Getting Relationships Right, which provides comprehensive instructions for facilitating professional development and organizational improvement sessions. These sessions are focused on helping staff build more developmental relationships with young people.

Activities

You'll get The Developmental Relationships Youth Activities Book, which includes thirty structured activities for building developmental relationships with and among young people.

Testimonials

December 2018 GRR Attendee

"This training is completely applicable to my organization and definitely needed!"

"Strong facilitation - strong planning - great resources - mostly based on adult learning - gives choice and engagement. Thank you for not lecturing. Loved that we were asked to facilitate and apply." 

December 2018 GRR Attendee

Teams of two or more people from secondary schools, youth programs, and other organizations that serve young people should attend. While teams can be comprised of people who play many different roles, at least one member of the team should be a leader who has responsibility for the professional development of staff or other important aspects of organizational improvement.  

Who should attend?

Yes! Studies that scholars at Search Institute and elsewhere are conducting are showing that relationships are the “active ingredient” – like fluoride in toothpaste – in schools and programs that succeed with all young people. That is why if you don’t get relationships right, you are unlikely to achieve the outcomes you seek and your young people deserve.
