Texas Skills for Effective Relationships Part 2

There are a wide range of clips to choose from that address different areas of the program and include topics such as: peer pressure, substance use, coming out, interpersonal conflict, dating relationships, etc. It is important to review clips in advance of showing them to the students so that appropriate clips are chosen for the students in the class as well as the topics being discussed. The lessons identify when it would be an appropriate time to show a clip.
