The Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter (LAWS) will present an interactive-simulation experience called “In Their Shoes” (created by Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence). Teens and parents will follow the story of a teen character who is in an abusive relationship. Participants will be asked to make choices for their character and, at times, take on the perspective of the abuser. Following the simulation activity, participants will engage in a discussion about the experience and dating violence.
Participants will then practice using active listening and assertive communication in an effort to empower teens and adults to be resilient, to identify warning signs and to help others. Local and national resources will be provided.
