The Breakable Vow Curriculum Guide/Instructors Manual provides a ready-to-implement Prevention Program for junior high schools, high schools, college level, and beyond. Ideal for youth groups. Its mission is to assist young people in choosing non-violent partners, along with recognizing and nourishing healthy relationships. The program is designed to be taught in tandem with the novel, The Breakable Vow, and utilizes the same concrete, humourous approach. Because the participants design the scenarios, dialogues, and role play, they will self-direct both the sophistication level and cultural mores appropriate to their experience. The bibliotherapy technique has proven immensley effective in addressing this issue. Desinged for use with co-ed or single sex groups. Study topics include: Profile of an Abusive Partner, Types of Abuse, Cycle of Violence, Risk ASsessment, Safety Plans/Breakup Plans, Victim Blaming, Society's Acceptance of Dating Violence, Helping Friends, Healthy/Unhealthy Relationships, Date Rape/Date Rape Drugs.
