We will be evaluating the upcoming Spring Relationship Skills Class. We are inviting everyone who is signed up for the Spring class and everyone on the waitlist for the Fall class to participate in the evaluation. People on the waitlist will be included because they will serve as a comparison group for those taking the class in the spring. Basically, we’re getting fancy and using what researchers call a “quasi-experimental design.” For more information click here.

Queer Collaborations (Q-Lab) provides full spectrum support, integrating innovative prevention and intervention strategies for LGBTQ youth survivors of violence, while addressing the underlying conditions that create health and safety disparities for youth experiencing violence.  Highlighting lessons learned and recommendations from Q-Lab, this webinar will look at the strengths and challenges of our domestic violence movement’s responses to serving young people experiencing violence.  We will focus specifically on barriers to working with youth under the age of 18, LGBTQ youth, and explore how domestic and sexual violence movements can meet the unique needs of youth survivors.

This webinar will discuss highlights and lessons learned from the NW Network’s unique, strengths-based sexual assault support group, Thriving While Healing: Finding Joy, Resilience and Support in the Aftermath of Sexual Assault. This all-gender support group, specifically oriented to LGBTQ survivors offers skills, education, and tools to name and confront the silence, isolation, and shame which so many survivors experience, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Themes and interactive activities from the group such as cultivating resilience, normalizing the process of healing, trigger planning, positive sexuality, and self-trust will be discussed during this webinar.
