About Us

The Relationship Foundation is a 501(c)(3) educational initiative with a Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum, Healthy Relationships 101. Our curriculum has been developed and taught in middle schools and high schools in New York City and nationwide. We use a process called “Nonviolent Communication” (NVC) that gives one the tools to identify and articulate their needs and feelings without blame and judgment. We also teach an approach to listening empathically. Students and teachers alike acknowledge that building a vocabulary of needs and feelings enhances their critical thinking, empathy, and respect.

In the face of increased threats to the security and safety of school children, our work highlights the importance of strengthening resilience in all children as a preventive strategy to enhance and protect their psychological well-being.

Although we are making a difference, substantial challenges persist. Research shows that over 75 percent of mental health disorders have their roots in the childhood and adolescent years. Millions of children never receive any kind of Social and Emotional instruction.
