TEEN'S TRAINING PROGRAMS
Teenagers are in an exciting, yet complex phase of life, facing new experiences and challenges. Certain safety-related decisions will have a lifelong impact. We help teens make informed choices by giving them accurate information about situations they will face. This is done in a safe and empowering format by skilled trainers. Each level of training offers a Parent Guide - this includes simple follow-up exercises and escape moves, for at-home practice. Information leads to beliefs and beliefs lead to actions.
As a child psychologist and trauma specialist, I feel this training is the best way to learn what feels okay and what to do about it when it is not okay. It is past the time for a program like this to be an essential part of school curriculum and parent education. It has been formulated in the most tasteful, fun, appropriate and empowering way - while hitting all the most important information. It's hands-down brilliant and essential!

One in four girls and one in six boys will face sexual assault or abuse.
90% of assaults will be by someone the child knows.
Nearly 70% of all reported sexual assaults (including assaults on adults) occur to children ages 17 and under.
Adolescents who experience assaults are two to three times more likely to have alcohol use or dependency problems than non-victims.
60% of child abuse victims never tell anyone.
