Love Bites Junior is a respectful relationships education program that focuses on the development of respectful relationships for 11-14 year olds.
The trauma informed module will provide an opportunity for facilitators to recognise the signs and symptoms of trauma and respond by integrating the knowledge about trauma into the delivery of NAPCAN's Respectful Relationships Programs and to actively resist re-traumatisation for young people.
Who should attend: Those that work with young people and are comfortable in working in the areas of sexual assault and relationship violence. The program can be delivered in schools and in out of school settings.
