This month the Fellows stayed within Boston city limits for their meeting at the Yawkey Boys and Girls Club! Lauren Peckler graciously hosted the group for the November meeting featuring the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC).
Trainers Lee Doyle and Steph Trilling led the group through a comprehensive series of seminars. The whole day was a snapshot of the programming BARCC offers. The first was a two part session on “Creating Healthy Environments for Young People.” Fellows explored effective safe spaces and strategies to create and maintain these environments. This session was followed by two other meetings: “Understanding Adolescent Development and Common Reactions to Trauma” and “Providing a Model for Responding to Trauma Disclosures.”
MPF would like to thank BARCC for providing Fellows these resources! These can be difficult topics to explore. Our BARCC trainers facilitated an experience that was both thoughtful and educational.
