Free Webinar on LGBTIQ Youth Dating Violence

What is Youth Dating Violence & How Does it Impact LGBTQ Youth?

Join us at 2pm EDT on Wednesday, January 19th for an in-depth look at youth dating violence, a type of intimate partner violence. NYAC is honored to welcome Melinda Coles, MSW, Director of Community Education for the DC Rape Crisis Center.  By the end of this 1-hour session, participants will be able to define youth dating violence, learn about its prevalence in LGBTQ youth relationships and debunk commonly held myths that surround it. Participants will learn to identify warning signs that youth in abusive relationships may exhibit and will learn ways to create environments that are not only welcoming to LGBTQ youth, but that promote awareness about youth dating violence.  This webinar is appropriate for almost any audience as it will feature important take-aways for agencies working with youth in various capacities including education, health care, social support and more.  Please contact Shannon Murphy, Program Manager, if you have questions about whether this webinar is for you.  Email Shannon at shannon@nyacyouth.org or call her at (202) 319-7596 x24.
