Good for Each Other

Fundamentals of Safe Dating and Healthy Relationships

GOOD for EACH OTHER aka “The Goods” is Advocates’ flagship program designed to improve cultural awareness and illustrate key concepts like: CONSENT, BOUNDARIES, and RESPECT.

Modern relationships are extremely complex. Navigating issues like stereotyping, problem behaviors, communication, and accountability is critical for building any relationship on a foundation of mutual respect which, in turn, can prevent misunderstandings, bigotry, and conflict.

This program also empowers participants with strategies and tactics for interrupting problem situations which makes our communities safer.

Intervene

Interrupting Problem Behavior Makes Everyone Safer

Experts in violence prevention have widely acknowledge that practices known as “bystanter intervention” are an effective method for reducing harm. When a witness can tell that an intervention may be necessary to prevent further abuse or an assult and they are familiar with tactics to safely interrupt problem behavior before it escalates, bystanders can actually become a primary force for making communities safer.
