    What Makes A Relationship Healthy?

    Mental Health

    FREE VIDEO

    This video details the three tenants of a healthy relationship: respect, equity, and communication. It goes over what it means to have a respectful relationship – each person is valued for who they are, and each can express yourself or say no to something they disagree with. The video also goes over what it means to have a lack of respect in a relationship, such as someone pressuring you to do something you don’t want to do. The video describes equity as both people being treated as equal partners and cooperating and compromising in a balanced way, while a lack of equity means someone is trying to control their partner or relationship. A relationship based in communication means that both people can say what they mean and mean what they say, discuss disagreements openly, and are willing to apologize. An unhealthy relationship might mean that disagreements are met with silence or pressure. Classroom favorite.
