Relationship Skills as a Subject at School?
Imagine instead of Chemistry at school; you were thought how to have a healthy and most of all, happy relationship. And if that was true, what type of skills would we develop? Relationship skills?

Was your heart going to be a little more… whole if years ago you had a few good hours of education on… how to search for happiness?
A Different TEDx Talk
A psychologist and researcher Joanne Davila teaches these skills to young adults at Stony Brook University… and I deeply regret it’s not an official part of the educational system.
She talks about three main skills a person needs to create and maintain a healthy relationship: Insight, Mutuality and Emotion Regulation.
She says “People may know what a healthy relationship is, but most don’t know how to get one.”
Her TEDx Talk has almost 2.5 million views on Youtube and is one of the most valuable TED Talks I’ve seen so far. You could also access her book The Thinking Girl’s Guide to The Right Guy: How Knowing Yourself Can Help You Navigate Dating, Hookups and Love here.
