Activity Overview


Getting out of an unhealthy relationship is difficult and potentially dangerous. It may be the best, but hardest, decision anyone has to make. A victim may be manipulated to the point of feeling like there is not a problem or it’s their own fault. It seems obvious to someone on the outside looking in for the victim to get out, but the victim may still be holding onto feelings from the honeymoon stage.

When they decide to end the relationship, it's important to have a safety plan in place. Some steps that should be taken are: not doing it alone, having a cell phone around, not further angering the aggressor than needed to end the relationship, telling a trusted adult, and setting a time limit on the conversation to limit possible manipulation from the aggressor.

In this activity, students will create a storyboard that identifies three safe and unsafe breakup techniques. This can be modified to a lower level by creating multiple scenes and having students identify the correct steps. Make sure each storyboard created by the students is appropriate for school as these topics can potentially trigger others.
