PENDING December 7: Youth Trauma Experiences
1 in 3 teens experience relationship violence. This training dives into the multiple types of abuse that can occur within relationships, how to recognize the signs of abuse, and what action to take when you know about an abusive relationship.
Caregivers should be informed about their teen’s media use and proactive in starting discussions about online safety. This training will help caregivers find the balance between being aware and involved with technology use while also being respectful of their teen’s privacy.
Healthy communication is important for maintaining a positive parent- child relationship and also helps young people develop healthy expectations for friendships and dating relationships. This training will equip caregivers with the skills to model healthy communication.
When handled well, conflict is an opportunity to grow the relationship. This training will help caregivers and other adults understand how to manage conflict with the children/students/youth in your life to set them up for healthy future relationships.
Building Trust with Youth
Most teens who experience abuse will never report it to anyone due to a lack of trusting relationships with adults. This training will equip adults to interact with youth in ways that make them feel safe, respected, and valued.
Normalization of Violence
The biggest contributing factors to teen dating violence are rigid gender norms and previous exposure to violence, both of which youth are regularly exposed to. This training will help you to recognize and challenge the normalization of violence.
Youth Trauma Experiences
Youth can be exposed to trauma from multiple sources, whether family, friends, dating relationships, or our larger communities. This training will discuss how youth are affected by trauma, including teen dating violence, and equip caregivers and other adults to respond to youth in a way that is appropriate, supportive, and trauma-informed.
