The ‘LOVE BiTES: Respectful Relationships’ Program’ was developed by the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN) to help educate young people aged 15 to 17 years old on healthy relationship development and violence prevention.
LOVE BiTES allows young people the opportunity to discuss their beliefs, knowledge and thoughts around healthy relationships in a supported, non-judgemental and safe environment. They are able to do this by participating in a range of discussions and activities that are based on respectful relationships and behaviours.
Love Bites is a Respectful Relationships Education Program for young people aged 15-17 years. It consists of two interactive workshops: one on Relationship Violence, and one on Sex and Relationships, followed by creative workshops and community campaigns. Love Bites is a flexible model with options to use a full day or multi session delivery approach. The program emphasises the importance of a whole-of-school commitment to respectful relationship education.
The KARI Foundation Community Programs team are facilitator trained to deliver this program. The program consists of two interactive workshops: one on Relationship Violence, and one on Sex and Relationships. Each workshop encourages active participation and since commencing this program at schools, the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
