is a smart, savvy book helps teen girls get respect and hold on to it — at home, at school, with their friends, and in the world.
Activities, writing exercises, safety tips, and empowering quotes from teens keep participants involved through a “big sister” style that inspires trust.
Tu Casa has also developed a Social Norming Project in Alamosa High School to address the norms that create intimate partner violence.
This project looks for inconsistencies between actual behavior, attitudes, and perceived norms that students self-report.
It also gives peer bystanders ways to intervene when signs of an unhealthy relationship are occurring with their friends.
Among sessions offered are: “defining a caring relationship”, “defining dating abuse”, “helping friends”, “how do we feel, how do we deal”, etc.
This information is analyzed and then developed into a poster and provided to the student body to create positive change.
