Showing Up for Teen and Young Adult Survivors (Virtual)
Friday, March 3, 2023, 10:00am-12:00pm (PT)
Hosted by The YWCA of Greater Portland Social Justice Program. Remember what was most important to you as a teen or young adult? Through a voluntary group role play, we will try to set the stage for understanding youth between the ages of 16 age 24, who statistically experience the highest rate of intimate partner violence. Why do youth stay in abusive relationships? In addition to the numerous barriers adults face, there are a myriad number of reasons unique to their age group; peer pressure, distrust of adults, conflicting emotions, and more. We will explore how best to support and safety plan with teens and young adults while helping to maintain their confidence and trust.
Cost: $0-$30. Registration and more information here
