Powerful X Nature - Healthy Relationships
Hosts: Anny & Victoria
Guests: Wendy De Sousa from METRAC
Topic: Healthy Relationships
This week our hosts Anny and Victoria led a conversation with our guest Wendy De Sousa from METRAC who helped shed some light on what a healthy relationship and unhealthy relationship looks like, what consent is and how we can unwillingly contribute to the concept of consent such as kissing on the cheek as a form of affection.
The second half of the show our hosts led a conversation about the cycle of abuse, the honeymoon phase and what someone can do if they know someone is in an abusive situation. Wendy shed some light on where someone who is being abusive can receive help.
We also spoke about what stalking is and how technology is making it easier for people to be stalked online, especially when one leaves their abuser. We went into detail about online safety when dealing with a potential stalker which includes how to get a restraining order if needed. Our music selection this week features Latin artists in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Songs featured:
1. Selena Gomez - Wolves
2. Calvin Harris – Rollin
3. Ne-Yo – Because of you
4. Charlie Puth – How Long
