The Relationship Spectrum
We often talk about relationships on a spectrum – like a scale – that ranges from healthy to abusive – with unhealthy behaviors falling somewhere in between.
When we begin to identify healthier behaviors and ways of communicating, we can move an unhealthy relationship along the spectrum to a healthier place!
DVCCC’s Public Education Team developed these *interactive* video quizzes to help challenge teens to think about common dating behaviors and scenarios and place them on the relationship spectrum from healthy to unhealthy or abusive – check them out below:
