Nauset and Racepoint Classes hosts Independence House guest
On March 9, 2009, Nauset and Racepoint classes hosted a guest from Independence House in Hyannis. Lauren Titus, Education Coordinator, presented a program that explained what Independence House does and how it acts as a resource for individuals in abusive relationships.
Lauren directed a game for students that focused on identifying situations or actions that were healthy and some that were not . Students actively participated and there was lively discussion and a free expression of ideas. A brief video also shared some teens experiences with relationships that showed warning signs that might indicate an unhealthy trend. At the end of the program students completed an Evaluation Form.
This is one of the first partnerships with an outside agency to provide important and helpful information as our students plan for Transition to an adult life.
