Youth Experiences of Gender-Based Violence: Current Understandings and Promising Practices
Speakers: Dr. Linda Baker and Jassamine Tabibi
June 2nd | 1:00pm – 2:30pm EST

Gender-based violence (GBV) continues to be a pervasive problem in Canada with a wide range of serious impacts on survivors. Youth are one group that are disproportionately affected by the continuum of GBV. In this webinar, we will examine youth experiences of GBV including exposure to intimate partner violence, teen dating violence, and cyber-violence. The critical concept of coercive control will be described with the aim of increasing our ability to recognize this form of violence.

This webinar will better enable participants to:

– Understand how youth experience the continuum of GBV
– Recognize how systemic oppression and structural violence shape experiences of GBV
– Identify promising practices to promote healthy relationships and respond to youth experiencing GBV
