MIDDLE SCHOOL

5-Dose Curriculum

Our pilot curriculum for 6th-8th grade students consists of five research-based and relevant lessons which enhance the confidence, skills and knowledge of youth to recognize the signs of coercive control and build and grow healthy relationships. The curriculum educates and activates middle school students to help prevent verbal, emotional and physical abuse and aggression by growing healthy relationships with peers.

  • increases understanding of controlling v. caring

  • builds communication, conflict resolution, boundary setting and coping skills

  • uncovers the root causes and risk factors of bullying and cyber bullying

  • empowers youth to consume and share digital media messages safely and responsibly

  • improves self-esteem and peer support

  • alleviates the barriers youth face with seeking help

  • boosts the confidence and skills of students to model empathy, respect, kindness, safety, consent, and bystander accountability, peer to peer.
