About the Toolkit

The FSU Toolkit on Healthy Relationships is a project developed by the Institute for Family Violence Studies within the Florida State University’s College of Social Work. Through the use of this Toolkit, college students will learn about the components of a healthy relationship, learn how to recognize signs of dating violence and sexual violence, and identify resources available on campus for students who need help.

Please complete the basic Toolkit.. The Toolkit includes information on special topics, including information on healthy relationships for Collegiate Veterans, LGBT students, Greek Life, and information on the risks of online dating.

For the purposes of simplifying language in this toolkit, the term domestic violence will be used to define violence by one intimate partner against another. The federal Lautenberg Amendment which will be discussed in depth later, also refers to the crime as domestic violence. Links to specific state laws addressing the crime as it is identified in each state are provided in the Resource Site.
