Dr. Joanne Cummings, PREVNet’s Knowledge Mobilization Director, presents a webinar “Responding to Disclosures of Teen Dating Violence at School”.

This webinar examines the literature about help-seeking behaviours by teens involved in dating violence, and ways to increase teens’ help seeking. Dr. Cummings will discuss trauma-informed practice, to ensure we communicate with those seeking help in a respectful and empowering manner and the role of teachers, guidance counsellors, and other mental health focused staff when it comes to responding to disclosures, in the context of school policy and provincial/territorial legislation. Dr. Cummings will highlight the importance of referrals to appropriate mental health service providers, and think about ways to promote collaboration between the education system and clinical settings that address teen dating violence.
