Wellspring presents ‘In Their Shoes,’ a program for teenagers (and their parents and loved ones) about dating violence and relationship abuse.

On Monday June 13 form 6-8 PM. Wellspring will be hosting ‘In Their Shoes,’ an interactive, experiential program for teens to learn about the warning signs of dating violence and highlights ways to stay safe.

Teens, parents, and loved ones are all invited to attend.

Over a two-hour period, participants become one of six teen characters based on the experiences of real teens including sexting, pregnancy, homophobia, and stalking. They make choices about their relationships and move through the scenario by reading about interactions with their dating partner, family, friends, counselors, police, and others.  This is an engaging way to talk about dating violence and healthy relationships.  Wellspring advocates will also be sharing information on how to help friends who may be in abusive relationships.

Snacks will be provided.

Space for this program is limited.  If you’d like to participate, please email our Prevention Coordinator, Jamie Gandron or call the Wellspring office at 518-583-0280.
