Better than Buzzfeed: Everything You Need to Know About Healthy Relationships

Dating, sex, and relationships are an important aspect of the college social experience. From crushes and flirty Snapchats to first loves and breakups – romantic relationships are a rollercoaster of emotions and life lessons. Because the quality of our relationships has a direct impact on almost every area of our life – including self-esteem, stress levels, and productivity – we need to choose and foster relationships carefully.

By sharing her years of experience and expertise, relationship expert Rachel DeAlto creates a comfortable space for discussion with helpful information that students can’t get from another college-aged friend or Buzzfeed article. She explains how everyone deserves to have healthy relationships. While they aren’t always easy, there is never an excuse for violence or abuse.

Healthy relationships are built on a foundation of self-worth within each person, and respect for one another. Unfortunately, violence and disrespect are currently very common in both heterosexual and same-sex relationships. In fact, 1 in 5 college women will experience violence in a relationship during college. It’s time for that to change, and it starts from within.

In this keynote, Rachel helps students assess the health of their relationships both with themselves and with others, allowing them to take control of their happiness and prevent unnecessary pain. Rachel utilizes personal stories of overcoming heartbreak and low self-esteem, coupled with motivation and necessary humor, to empower students to make smart choices that allow them to feel safe and confident in their relationships.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending this program, students will learn:

  • what expectations they should set to build healthy relationships,
  • how to spot the warning signs of abusive or unhealthy relationships with themselves and/or others,
  • tips on how to build self-esteem, and
  • how to prevent potentially toxic relationships.
Yes, No, Maybe?

Mutual, verbal, unambiguous, conscious agreement to engage in sexual activity. Sounds romantic, right? Well, it can be when you learn how to explore affirmative consent in a way that makes sense, feels natural, and leaves all involved feeling secure and confident about their sexual experience. Sexual assault on campus is rampant. Recent statistics show that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 33 men will experience sexual assault by the time they graduate. Consent is an essential component to reducing those assaults, and most colleges (and many state legislatures) are now recognizing the need for affirmative consent, where yes means yes is the only standard. No means no is no longer enough.

In this keynote, Rachel explains why communication is not just the key to relationships, but when it comes to sex on campus, communication is required. Rachel shares her relationship expertise to entertain and engage students while leaving them with a clear understanding of how to successfully have these crucial conversations.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending this program, students will learn:

  • how to define what affirmative consent is or isn’t,
  • why affirmative consent is required,
  • strategies to reduce stress and anxiety,
  • how to ask and obtain affirmative consent from their sexual partners, including potential scenarios and key phrases, and
  • the role that alcohol and drugs play in obtaining consent.
Unmasking Leadership

In a world where we all seem to wear a limitless number of masks (or Instagram filters), it is easy to hide behind false identity. The world doesn’t have to be a masquerade. It’s time that we unmask the power of authenticity and vulnerability. Everyone has a story. Everyone has struggles, insecurities, and flaws. What if we all recognized the power in sharing our truths rather than painting a picture of perfection? The best leaders inspire as they draw from a well of strength and humility that comes from the confidence of being comfortable with oneself – flaws and all.

Through this program, your students will learn how you can connect with others and reach your greatest potential through self-awareness, vulnerability, and confidence in being exactly who you are. Relationship expert, attorney, and entrepreneur may be the titles that Rachel DeAlto wears but in this presentation she will unmask personal struggles AND triumphs which helped her achieve her success. She will engage students with her humor and heart, helping to create a vehicle for the development of empowered leaders throughout your campus.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending the program, students will learn:

  • how to understand the power of vulnerability and authenticity,
  • how to ask for help and encourage teamwork,
  • the importance of embracing weaknesses and past mistakes with confidence and strength, and
  • how to overcome fears connected with being vulnerable.
Fall in Love…With You!

We start out as babies, loving ourselves unconditionally. As time goes on, we allow external influences to get in the way of how awesome we think we are. College students are no exception to this, and many times have negative views of themselves. What if you’re not smart enough? Not attractive enough? Not athletic enough? Rachel DeAlto helps students understand that there’s much more to be proud of than external characteristics.

This interactive keynote brings back the love – for yourself! Rachel has coached hundreds of clients and shares thoughtful, humorous, real-life stories to help illustrate important learning lessons for student audiences. Learn how to build unstoppable confidence, make yourself a priority and make sure everyone around you knows just how amazing you truly are!

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending the program, students will learn:

  • how to create more self-love and appreciation by building more confidence and positive self-image,
  • ways to make themselves a high priority by setting and maintaining boundaries, and
  • techniques to overcome personal fears and bringing out their individual talents and gifts.
