Books are a way to better understand our own lives, as well as other people’s experiences. Did you know that we have a reading list for teens about family domestic violence? The books, selected by Advocacy Center teen interns, have themes of parental domestic violence and include a range of genres, families, and intensity. Take a look and see if you’ve read any of them!

Also, please keep in mind that our Youth Educator teaches programs on boundaries; healthy-unhealthy-abusive relationship behaviors; sexualized media and violence; and sexual abuse; email info@actompkins.org for more info.
