Building Healthy Intimate Relationships

In the context of the GEAR against IPV II Project (co-funded by the DAPHNE III Programme of the eu) Adolescents’ awareness raising workshops entitled “Building Healthy Intimate Relationships” were conducted and evaluated in 5 countries aiming to contribute to primary and secondary prevention of violence in the romantic/intimate relationships of adolescents. Specially trained teachers implemented workshops with adolescents, aiming to raise adolescents’ awareness on the harmful effects of gender stereotyping, IPV/dating violence/gender based violence and sexual violence and to encourage the development of attitudes of zero tolerance towards violence against girls and women at a relatively young age, with the ultimate goal being to promote the development of healthy, equal and violent-free relationships. A total of 81 workshops (65 with students and 16 with high-risk groups with the participation of more than 1.600 adolescents) were implemented and evaluated, in Cyprus, Greece, Croatia, Romania and Spain. On the basis of the evaluation results a Policy Brief was developed entitled: "The role of school: Evidence-based Policy Recommendations for Adolescents' Empowerment" that is available in English here: and also in Greek, Croatian, Romanian, and Catalan.
