In our journey toward creating safer communities, fostering healthy relationships is key. At The Turning Point, we believe in empowering individuals with the knowledge and skills to build a consent culture—one where mutual respect, communication, and understanding form the foundation of every interaction.
Understanding Healthy Relationships
Healthy relationships are built on trust, communication, and shared values. It's about ensuring that each person feels heard, valued, and respected. At the core of these relationships lies the concept of consent, a fundamental principle that should guide our interactions in both personal and professional spheres.
Consent Culture: What Does It Mean?
A consent culture goes beyond the simple notion of saying "yes" or "no." It's about creating an environment where everyone feels comfortable expressing their boundaries and having those boundaries honored. Consent is a continuous, enthusiastic agreement, ensuring that all parties involved are willingly and actively participating.
