Tonight's special guest is Karen Addison from Denver, CO, a returning NAASCA family member who's an advocate for youth, and for women in destructive relationships at R.E.A.L. Relationships. Karen is also a speaker, educator, consultant and relationship coach. "I'm working on a women's conference that I hope to take national, for women in destructive relationships," Karen says. "Our first conference is April 23! I'll send you more details as we fine tune them. And I'm trying to get in at the grass roots level on a new act passed this past December, The Teach Safe Relationships Act of 2015, by Senator McKaine of Virginia. I am thrilled the government is finally recognizing the critical importance of educating our youth as a primary means to reduce violence and the cycle of abuse." It is Karen’s passion and purpose to help people learn how to have healthy relationships and how to move forward in destructive relationships. By presenting a healthy template for relationships, Karen’s students and clients will learn how to create their own healthy relationships. Because she has experienced unhealthy and destructive relationship dynamics on a personal level, Karen has a great desire to empower others. This includes providing students and clients with the skills necessary to set safe and appropriate boundaries that expect respect from others and that offer dignity and respect to others. Karen also provides awareness and knowledge about what a healthy relationship is, and shares the skills necessary to achieve these. The purpose of R.E.A.L. Relationships is to provide the education and tools necessary to form healthy and lasting relationships, and to prevent destructive relationships.
