Relationship skills allow us to establish and maintain healthy and supportive relationships while navigating settings with new people. In this course, you will define relationship skills, explore examples and strategies, and leave with at least one specific strategy or technique to try in the classroom that will support your students in developing relationship skills.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • And determine what you can do to develop the skills your students possess in order to build their relationship skills competence
