Thank you to Communities in Schools North Texas for letting us do our first test run on this critical workshop. Navigating Teen Relationships is new for Autumn 2018, available in two courses: one for middle and high school students, and one for adults (parents and faculty).
In collaboration with Dr. Abel Tomatis and others, we lead participants through discussions including healthy vs unhealthy relationships, self checking, the Personal Bill of Rights, and phases of trafficking. Knowing the signs helps keep us on the road to safety and positive relationships.
Round-table group exercises reinforce how adults can provide help in various situations. Student workshop exercises guide teens through social media situations, underline the importance of self checking, and help them identify dangerous behaviors. We talk about what to say and how to approach a friend who may be a victim and how to talk to a friend who may be an abuser.
In recent years we have seen a trend in school shootings that involved teen relationships that had gone bad. Our goal is to improve student safety every day by empowering them to avoid dangerous relationships and help each other.
This workshop is 2 hours long each for adults and for students and can also be combined for a group workshop into 2 hours for parent/student groups, church youth groups, and other organizations. Contact Heidi Wysocki to book this workshop.
