We imagine you are having the same reaction we did when our colleagues from the City of Seattle Human Services Department shared with us that girls enrolled in a teen parent group at Atlantic Street Center were more and more frequently telling stories about their own experiences or those of their peers who were concerned about unhealthy relationships and exploitation. Together, we decided to do something to address this need.
- be able to identify the components of and the difference between a healthy and unhealthy relationship.
- report increase safety strategies to prevent being sexually exploited.
- develop increased self-esteem, self-efficacy and pro-social behavior.
- report increased recognition and use of family, school and community resources.
