Course Description

In this experience-based training, participants become one of six characters based on the lives of real teens, including sexting, pregnancy, homophobia, and stalking. They make choices about their relationship and move through the scenario by reading about interactions with their dating partner, family, friends, counselors, police, and others. The experience helps participants learn about types of abuse, understand the importance of advocacy, and collect information on local resources. 


In Their Shoes teaches concepts necessary to speak to someone impacted by intimate partner violence about their experience. The simulation will conclude with a group discussion to help participants better process what they learned, ask questions, and learn how to access community resources focused on intimate partner violence prevention and intervention. 


The course can be customized to fit your group’s needs and objectives.

Group sessions are available with a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 40 participants. For more information on hosting a group session, please compete the interest form below or contact
