GAYC Sponsors Healthy Marriage & Relationship Education Training
The Georgia Association on Young Children was pleased to be able to provide the Healthy Relationship & Marriage Education Training at the Dunbar Community Center for the Atlanta Promise Neighborhood with gracious funding from the United Way of Greater Atlanta. Leading the training was Dr. Ted Futris, Associate Professor and Certified Family Life Educator from The University of Georgia.
Grounded in theory and empirical research, the training provided a context for understanding how couple and marital relations impact parenting and child safety and well-being. Participants developed strategies and an awareness of resources available to support their clientele in developing and maintaining healthy couple and marital relationships with a goal of improving outcomes for vulnerable children.
