Day One consisted of a discussion on the cycle of violence, types of violence, and warning signs, along with videos to provide them examples. We also introduced to them the Dating Bill of Rights and did an activity in which they created anger diagrams focusing on where anger stems from, what it can induce, and how to prevent it from leading into violence. Day Two was a fun day for the teens as we gave them scenarios about teen dating violence and using the tools and the information provided to them on the previous day, they were to create a skit to present how to best handle violent situations. The teens were very creative and mindful of teen dating violence and we were all so proud that they gained knowledge from what we have shared with them! Wow this is an amazing workshop!
