On Tuesday, August 25, 2015, Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark attended the Kærlig Talt (Loving Action) event held at the Guldberg Skole in Copenhagen.
An initiative of the Mary Fonden, Kærlig Talt is a:
“…a course for the nation’s students at secondary school age. The ambition is to develop young people’s abilities to cope with difficult emotions so they can better maintain secure healthy relationships with each other, and then at a later stage in life are equipped to help avoid dating violence or other forms of violent relationships.
The purpose of Loving Action is to develop students’ ability to create positive and safe relationships, deal with difficult emotions individually and with each other, prevent dating violence and destructive conflicts, develop communication skills so that they learn to communicate appropriately and constructively, understand what can lead to violence in intimate relationships, explore non-violent practices, and to seek help if violence still occurs.”
