Breakout Facilitator at the 2017 Teen Wellness Conference
Peer Support: How to Maintain Healthy Relationships
Pronouns: she, her, hers
Breakout Session: #ThatsNotLove
While everyone wants to be #relationshipgoals, not everyone gets there. This discussion will revolve around the signs and effects of emotional abuse in teen relationships, and empower teens to “speak up” when they see unhealthy behaviors in their own and their friends’ dating lives. The discussion will include videos from a popular digital campaign called #thatsnotlove, whose videos have more than 60 million shares on social media. The One Love Foundation is excited to bring this important information to the Teen Wellness Conference 2017!
