Teen relationships workshop Feb. 6

Jan 31, 2014

Camden — Join New Hope for Women on Thursday, Feb. 6, from 11 a.m. to noon at the YMCA Teen Center, 10 Knowlton St. in Camden, to learn about the difference between healthy and unhealthy teen friendships and dating relationships.

This free workshop for parents and community members will help participants recognize the early signs of an unhealthy or abusive relationship. Discussion will include reviewing the subtle aspects of respectful relationships that encourage teens to have strong support networks, and to develop authentic self-esteem. Finally, participants will learn how to help a teen plan for safety, to trust his/her best instincts, and to know when to seek the help of trusted adults.

Participants are welcome to bring a bag lunch and a friend. There is no charge for the workshop, but registration is requested by calling New Hope for Women at 594-2128.
