Live webinar series
June 6, 7, and 14, 2022 | 1 to 4 p.m. EST
This three-part training will provide an in-depth look at the impact of intimate partner violence (IPV) and domestic violence (DV) on youth. Participants will learn the compounding effects IPV, DV, and generational trauma can have on youth across developmental ages and stages.
This virtual training will examine how the COVID-19 global pandemic has exacerbated this crisis. Over the last two years, many individuals have been disconnected, isolated from community resources and support systems. It is important to re-think safety in this situation. Participants will explore ways in which the work has shifted and can continue to shift to address these new challenges.
Learn creative ways to engage youth to address the impacts of intimate partner violence during COVID-19 from a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive perspective. The experiential learning will allow participants to find ways to incorporate practical applications of this knowledge into their work. Along with theory to practice and create community amongst attendees by using creative expression to represent the multitude of ways that expressive tools can help support young people’s well-being. This training will introduce the use of art as a way to support resilience and promote emotional wellness.
Together with Jennifer Herbert, participants will explore:
Ways DV and IPV can impact youth across development
How the COVID-19 global pandemic has impacted rates of reported DV/IPV in the last two years
Practical interventions for youth impacted by DV/IPV
