9 a.m. to 4 p.m. – Abuse prevention through education (In partnership with Appleseed)
Louisiana law mandates the governing authority of each public school teaching 7th-12th grades, including charter schools, provides instruction to employees and students about dating violence.  In an effort to bring convenience and consistency to schools, Louisiana Appleseed’s Abuse Prevention through Education Program is providing a one-day training on the Safe Dates Curriculum, which will be conducted by Hazelden Publishing. Attendees will receive the Respect Works Teen Dating Violence Education Toolkits, which include four components: a sample comprehensive school policy on dating violence, the Ending Violence Program, the Speak…Act…Change Program and the Safe Dates Curriculum. Safe Dates is a research based Dating Abuse program consisting of a highly engaging curriculum, a dating abuse play, a poster contest, highly effective parent materials and an evaluation component.  The Safe Dates manual will provide all the needed materials including a CD-ROM with ready to use handouts. Participants in the training will discuss the severity and consequences of teen dating violence along with the importance of utilizing Safe Dates to prevent and reduce dating violence. Also, school dating violence policy ideas and information will be discussed.
