Creating Safe Spaces For Youth Healing – Prevention Peer Network
This month’s Prevention Peer Network Webinar features Eydie Pasicel, Children and Youth Services Advocate Counselor, WomenShelter of Long Beach.
Eydie has worked at WSLB with children, teens and caregivers, victims of domestic violence, since 2010. She works directly with children and youth in both group sessions and individual counseling. She employs techniques designed to allow expression of fear, anger, and sadness in ways that avoid re-traumatizing the young victims.
Eydie is an alumna from California State University, Long Beach where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development, along with a minor in Psychology. She is a presenter for the state-mandated 40-Hour Domestic Violence Advocate Training and makes countless presentations to youth and adults to help them heed the warning signs and focus on healthy relationships
In this month’s webinar, Eydie will be discussing:
• Creating a safe space in a youth group with the intent of processing and healing from the violence that has occurred in the home
• Traditional and embodied art
• Teen dating violence presentations that are taking place in middle schools, high schools and Long Beach City College
• Success story of a client after interacting with WomenShelter staff; showing where he started and where he is now
