The Center for Safe Schools is pleased to announce the availability of Safe Dates Implementation Training for Pennsylvania educators and community partners. The training will be held on November 5, 2014 at the Center for Safe Schools, 275 Grandview Avenue, Camp Hill, Pennsylvania 17011.
Safe Dates is an evidence-based program for preventing dating abuse among adolescents. It consists of the following five components:
1. A ten-session dating abuse curriculum
2. A play about dating abuse
3. A poster contest
4. Parent materials, including a letter, newsletter, and the Families for Safe Dates program
5. An evaluation questionnaire
Safe Dates can be used as a dating abuse prevention tool for both male and female middle- and high-school students. Safe Dates would fit well within a health education, family life skills, or general life skills curriculum.
This one-day event is being offered for those individuals who wish to support their schools in the implementation of the Safe Dates Curriculum. A school counselor can offer Safe Dates as part of a support group or counseling/education program or it can be used in after school, community youth enrichment, and faith-based youth programs. Safe Dates can also be used as an intervention tool at domestic abuse or crisis centers, in juvenile diversion programs, and with victim support groups.
There is a $129.00 registration fee for Pennsylvania educators and community partners. Out-of-state participants or those who will not be implementing Safe Dates in a school will be charged a $350.00 registration fee. Each participant will receive a copy of the Safe Dates Curriculum and supportive materials, as well as lunch at no extra charge.
