Listen Along

"Love Notes Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) Edition addresses these issues by building skills and knowledge for healthy relationships of all kinds: romantic, friendship, family, school, and work… youth learn more about themselves: how their past has shaped the present and how to make decisions on what they want for their own future. They learn what healthy relationships are and are not while building a set of skills for choosing friends and partners, and for developing and maintaining healthy relationships, including evidence-based communication and conflict management skills."
