  4. 4. <ul><li>Skills for Effective Communication : </li></ul><ul><li>Good communication is the key for all healthy, positive and satisfying relationships. </li></ul><ul><li>Communication allows conflict resolution to be possible without further conflict because they can express feelings, emotions & opinions. </li></ul><ul><li>Some topics may be very difficult to discuss, e.g sex, relationship fights, or bad memories. </li></ul><ul><li>Being able to communicate will reduce conflict and embarrassment when discussing these topics.

  6. 6. <ul><li>Accepting and fulfilling responsibilities : </li></ul><ul><li>Rights are super important in relationships. Many rights are situated in the laws and moral standards of society. </li></ul><ul><li>Each Right carries with it responsibilities; actions we must take to show respect for other people. </li></ul><ul><li>Rights and responsibilities will change for each relationship based on the nature of the relationship. E.g our rights and responsibilities change from say a girlfriend to the local video owner. </li></ul><ul><li>Whatever the relationship is, it is important that the other member is respected and their rights met. </li></ul><ul><li>You come up with your own rights and responsibilities for relationships. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Respect for others’ rights : </li></ul><ul><li>All relationships require a balance of responsibilities between the people in the relationships. (think back to yr 10 pdhpe when you studied relationships and power in relationships. </li></ul><ul><li>Boundaries are also very important in relationships so both parties feel equal in the relationship. </li></ul><ul><li>Positive relationships require all members of the relationship to pull there weight and fulfill their responsibilities. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember that you still have a relationship with your parents and the same principals exist in that relationship. Also remember that parental relationships are also dynamic. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Power in relationships: </li></ul><ul><li>Power in relationships needs to be equal if both parties rights and responsibilities are to be met. </li></ul><ul><li>Power is often scued in one partners favor and therefore resentment is caused in the other partner. Power does not just relate to boyfriend girlfriend, same sex partners. It can be in many different forms in many different relationships. </li></ul><ul><li>Power can originate from many areas, such as socioeconomic status, education, finance, gender, race and orientation to certain groups. </li></ul><ul><li>Our ability to use power or act with power depends on the situation we are in. E.G you can argue with friends but it is not the best option to argue with a boss. </li></ul><ul><li>Power in relationships can be used in positive and negative ways. </li></ul><ul><li>A balance of power enables both parties in a relationship to feel safe. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>When power is not used correctly then a case of Abuse is caused. </li></ul><ul><li>Abuse is when someone uses power against others to intimidate them and get them to do what they want. </li></ul><ul><li>The types of abuse are listed below; </li></ul><ul><li>- physical??? </li></ul><ul><li>-emotional??? </li></ul><ul><li>-verbal??? </li></ul><ul><li>-sexual??? </li></ul><ul><li>Remember that trust is very hard to earn so therfore when abused then it will be very hard to gain back. </li></ul><ul><li>A balance of power is not always possible, eg school students and teachers, kids and parents. However rights and responsibilities should still be met for positive relationships. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>REVIEWING RELATIONSHIPS ; </li></ul><ul><li>Relationships provide a person with a sense of connectedness and therefore self efficacy and self esteem. That means the status or nature of a relationship does effect health in a broad way. </li></ul><ul><li>Connectedness provides us with a sense of feeling valued and supported. </li></ul>
