Resource: Brene Brown’s video on empathy vs. Sympathy:
SQUINCH is a digital curriculum for GSA clubs (Gender and Sexuality Alliance/Gay Straight Alliance) to learn healthy relationship skills. Each module contains a video, facilitator’s guide and transcript. SQUINCH stands for Sharing Queer Understanding, Inclusion, Nonviolent Communication, and Health! SQUINCH is a project of the Health Equity Alliance for LGBTQ+ New Mexicans (HEAL Plus NM).
Each learning module can be a standalone discussion or activity for the club, and we encourage GSA student leaders to choose and lead the modules that most interest them.
GSA student leaders are encouraged to read the facilitator’s guide, play the video for the club, and host a discussion on each module. The facilitator’s guide has resources, additional discussion questions, and tips. Find the facilitator guides here: https://healplusnm.org/squinch
The video portion of the module includes information, activities, discussion prompts, and quizzes. Modules can be accessed in any order and any amount. We do encourage starting with Module 1: Welcome & Group Agreements.
Each video has high quality closed captioning and transcripts.
Here is the SQUINCH playlist in order:
