CHS Hosts Teen Dating Violence Workshop


By: Crystal Mutilitis, Clinician

Carteret High School's Pathways hosted a vital domestic violence workshop for students in December 2021 after recognizing the need to have more in-depth conversations about the topic with students. The workshop was open to all students and about 30 students attended. A guest speaker from Women Aware, a domestic violence shelter near New Brunswick, NJ providing help for people dealing with domestic abuse, led the workshop. Students learned about the cycle of domestic violence, warning signs, ways to get help and how to help their peers. Women Aware led a Q&A session at the end of the workshop where students actively engaged in asking questions about their own personal experiences. The workshop ended with an opportunity for participants to win domestic violence awareness apparel and gift cards.

Pathways was eager to host a follow up workshop focused on Teen Dating Violence for Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month in February 2022. Women Aware offered to run the second part of this significant workshop and again delivered important information to CHS students. The discussion included information about the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships, rights to their own personal privacy and resources to get help. Students engaged in another series of Q&A questions and a group discussion emerged about how to navigate high school relationships. Students provided helpful feedback and requested additional workshops to continue the conversations about domestic violence and to continue to spread awareness. Stay tuned for upcoming workshops!
