General Material
Published Date
January, 2019

The Expect Respect Program is a school-based program designed to promote safe and healthy relationships. The program manual includes: Introduction and Overview; Part I-Increasing Resilience: A Support Group Curriculum and Guide for Facilitators (Grades 3-5); Part II: Building Healthy Relationships: A Support Group Curriculum and Guide for Facilitators (Grades 6-12); and Part III: Developing Youth Leaders: A Guide for Facilitators (Grades 6-12). The 4-book set and digital files can be ordered from SAFE.

The 2019 edition of the manual builds upon three decades of programming and evaluation to bring you a comprehensive, research-based violence prevention program that can be replicated in your community. The Expect Respect Team is also available to assist you in creating or expanding existing prevention programming in your community. The program's multi-level strategies aim to increase safety, social support and relationship skills among vulnerable youth; engage youth leaders in creating safer and more welcoming schools, and increase capacity for school-wide responsiveness and prevention.
