New Hope Midcoast Speaker Series with Dr. Nan Stein
Advocates at New Hope Midcoast regularly see the effects of teen dating violence and domestic abuse. Although teachers, counselors and administrators at schools across the region work to create a safe learning culture where knowledge is prioritized and shared, sexual harassment remains a global concern. In fact, nearly half of public school students in grades 7-12 experience sexual harassment.
To help address this issue and to provide access to proven methods for addressing sexual harassment in schools, New Hope Midcoast, in collaboration with Sexual Assault Support Services of Midcoast Maine (SASSMM), is bringing Dr. Nan Stein to Rockland and Boothbay. Dr. Stein co-led the development of “Shifting Boundaries”, a school-based dating violence intervention program—one of only three in the country endorsed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Educators, guidance counselors, school administrators, health and mental healthcare providers, parents, community members and agencies that work with youth are invited to attend Dr. Nan Stein’s presentation.
Join us on Thursday, September 28th at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay from 4-5:30 p.m. for Dr. Nan Stein’s talk “Sexual Harassment and Dating Violence: A Talk for School Personnel, Parents, Students and Other Professionals Serving Youth.”
Registration is $10 per person and is required by September 26, 2023:
