Let’s highlight some prevention today, since we spend so much time on response. That’s Not Cool, in conjunction with Break the Cycle, has an upcoming webinar, Respect Effect: A New Tool for Teen Dating Violence Prevention. The session will be held August 31st at 1pm ET. From the announcement:
That’s Not Cool is proud and excited to announce the release of a brand new mobile app: Respect Effect. Respect Effect was developed in partnership with teens! Respect Effect is an innovative NEW mobile application that encourages users to learn and practice healthy relationship skills, all while earning points for completing fun challenges with their friends. The app focuses on developing the skills young people need to keep themselves safe, promote positivity and respect (online and off!), and create and sustain healthy relationships.
We hope you’ll join us, and our friends Break the Cycle, as we give you a full introduction to Respect Effect. We will explain exactly how you can easily integrate this tool into your violence prevention work with teens. We will also touch on:
- Digital dating abuse and the tenants of organizing youth in digital spaces
- Best practices for the development of new digital tools
- Tips and tricks for social media engagement and promotion
