Building Girls’ Protective Assets in Indian Country: Intentional Girl-Centered Program Design
The protective asset building approach emerged internationally in the late 1990s as a way to increase teenage girls’ resilience and overall capabilities. It grew in response to research showing that girls’ access to resources and support in their community shrinks at puberty due to heightened fears of sexual violence. At this life-stage girls are not well-served by programs that cater to either children or adult women.
The goal for this webinar is for participants to engage in critical thinking about how their coalition/advocates and communities are actively practicing resiliency with youth who witness or experience domestic violence/intimate partner violence in their homes. Our panel consists of Victoria Sweet from NCJFCJ, Haley Merrill from CASA, Dr. Alaina Szlachta, PHD from NDVH, and Caroline LaPorte from NIWRC.
