Most young people have thoughts and feelings about wanting to be close to someone, maybe having a girlfriend or boyfriend or maybe even someday finding a life partner and getting married. These thoughts and feelings are okay but some students require direct instruction to learn about the conditions under which is it appropriate and not appropriate to act on these thoughts and feelings. These materials are designed to assist students in understanding these abstract social norms and navigating the complexities of different types of relationships. These resources provide explicit social skills instruction targeted to teach essential perspective taking skills. When students understand that our behaviors affect how other people think and feel about us and if they feel comfortable and think we are safe and okay to be around, we can increase the likelihood of positive relationship outcomes and avoid negative social consequences. In addition, these materials focus on teaching students the importance of effective communication, attending to the body language of others as well as always respecting the other person’s feelings and personal space needs.
