ASU’s Counseling Ser­vices partnered with the Texas Advocacy Project on Feb. 11 to present a seminar in the Houston Harte University Center.

“Real Talk in Relation­ships” informed students on what it looks like to be in a healthy re­lationship.

Faculty and students joined to learn about the telltale signs of potential harmful re­lationships. Some of the topics covered were communication, resolving conflicts without re­sorting to violence, identifying controlling behaviors and digital abuse.

Attendees also received personal safety plans so they can have a constructive layout in case they’re in an abusive relationship. The plan highlighted a few things such as safety after a breakup and breakups when children are in­volved.

Michelle Boone, director of Title IX Compliance, said she believes students should only in­volve themselves in healthy rela­tionships.

“Today was about iden­tifying healthy relationships,” Boone said. “Students should en­gage in meaningful relationships where consent and health reside. If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to ask. If you are having or have heard anything related to Title IX, you can report through our hotlines, online or even in person.”

Title IX will partner with ASU’s Counseling Services and UREC to present the Coaching Healthy Relationships event on Feb. 21 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Ben Kelly Center for Human Performance.
