The Elephant in the Room–the topic that’s often avoided, but absolutely necessary to discuss–Domestic Violence. “Nearly 1.5 million high school students in the United States are physically abused by dating partners every year” (National Coalition Against Domestic Violence). A relevant topic of discussion at the Who Said…? Workshop was domestic violence to help the young ladies understand the impact domestic violence has on teenage and college student relationships.
Have you ever been told:
“You’re not good enough.”
“You’re not smart enough.”
“You’re not pretty enough.”
“You’re not popular.”
Whatever the “You’re not…” that’s been said to you, attending the workshop will help dispel those negative thoughts. After attending this workshop, you will have a clear understanding of who you are and the power you have to succeed. You will know the power of what you say and how it affects your self-esteem and self-worth.
We will also discuss teen and college dating violence as it has become more prevalent among these age groups. Resources will be provided to help you understand signs of an abusive relationship, safe methods of leaving the relationship, etc.
This is a free workshop for females ages 13-22.
