About the Event

Nola Kesia Brantley

Training Description

Trauma can impact one’s sense of self-worth, experience of love, and skew one’s boundaries. So, it’s essential to have ongoing dialogue with system-involved youth about consent and coercion. This training will explore examples of how youth are coerced into commercial sexual exploitation and coerced into staying involved in it. We’ll look at ways to engage youth in dialogue about consent and why they deserve to have their boundaries respected. We’ll also talk about how to help youth respect other people’s boundaries.

Learning Objective

• Participants will be able to distinguish between consent and coercion.

• Participants will be able to identify at least 1 challenge system involved youth involved in the commercial sex industry have with setting boundaries.

• Participants will be able identify at least 3 strategies to talk with system involved youth about consent and coercion.
