Active Listening: Tools & Skills is next up on Tuesday, July 24th. Active listening is a communication technique that is used in counseling, training, and conflict resolution. This session will be led by a trained HAVEN advocate to foster active listening skills and tools for the workplace and beyond.
Media & Violence is set for Wednesday, August 22nd. This presentation and discussion will consider how media, including pornography, play an important role in normalizing violence in our culture. Plus, tips and tools for teaching consent and respect to all ages.
