Girls in the Juvenile Justice system are disproportionately victims of sexual violence. Girl’s common, age-appropriate reactions to trauma are criminalized and exacerbated by the involvement in the juvenile justice system. In addition, the mental health diagnoses for our justice engaged girls is at 80% while boys are at 67%. This workshop is intended to allow collaborators access points in understanding the gender differences within the ACE criteria points and the problems within the juvenile justice and adult institutions regarding the disproportionate number of girls and women of color within the facilities nationwide. And finally, this workshop will examine a solutions-based approach to changing the system for women and girls. Here in this collaborative workshop, participants will learn the importance of adding or blending Social Emotional Learning into Schools and workplace. They will gain insight on how to run Respect Labs collaboratively with multi-disciplinary institutions. Participants will learn how to identify invisible barriers for justice engaged women and girls.


As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Learn about the newest approaches of Trauma-Informed Education (gender specific needs).
  • Best practices in understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences.
  • Identify strategies on how to provide “Respect Labs” into your schools/workplaces.
