Human Trafficking in Collaboration with Asian Association of Utah

As a youth caretaker or individual working with youth, you are in a unique position to reach those considered vulnerable to exploitation and human trafficking: youth. You play an important role because you interact with youth regularly, you learn about their lives, and you often gain their trust. You may also help connect youth with their peers and/or communities, which may help protect them against exploitation.

Helping Classmates, Safe Bystander Behavior

When students and community ignore bullying behaviors, they are sending a message that bullying is acceptable or something that can’t be stopped. The way to combat that is by creating a positive environment where inclusion, respect for differences, and trust between students and community are of the utmost importance. This type of environment can curb incidences of bullying and give student bystanders the awareness and tools they need to take positive action if/when bullying does occur.

Positive Behavior Norms

Most people would agree that few things impacted their school lives as much as their relationships with their peers—friends, acquaintances, or otherwise. Peer relationships play an important role in children’s school lives, and relationships with peers become even more influential as children enter adolescence. In this presentation we will learn about SEL Social Emotional Learning and explore a breakdown of specific skills for each of CASEL’s five competencies (self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision-making).

Safe Dating Behavior

Interpersonal violence is an epidemic in our country this also affects teens. Here are some facts about Teen Dating Violence: 1 in 10 high school students has been purposefully hit, slapped, or physically hurt by a boyfriend or girlfriend. Most violent behavior typically begins between the ages of 12 and 18. Violence experienced at this age has long lasting effects. Victims are at higher risk for substance abuse, eating disorders, risky sexual behavior and further domestic violence. Half of youth who have been victims of both dating violence and rape attempt suicide. Getting teens engaged in preventing dating violence is key to preventing domestic violence in adulthood. During this session you will learn that all relationships begin with the relationship you have with yourself, four rules for healthy relationships, five rules to healthy decision making and domestic violence.
