Description

InterACTION walks youth through the often-bewildering process of learning to communicate with others effectively, both learning how to get their point across to others and understanding what others are trying to say to them. This will help them prevent conflict, or manage it more successfully if it can't be prevented. It will also allow them to strengthen relationships with their friends, parents, teachers, and others whom they will spend their lives needing to work with and understand. At the same time, the lessons gently encourage them to consider what happens when the best of intentions don't work out. They're reminded that they can't control the behavior of others, and no one is perfect - we all have moments when our communications are less than ideal. How we cope with that, including apologizing when we're wrong, is part of this curriculum.

  • learn about different communication styles
