Korean American Family Services (KFAM) will be hosting a second seminar on dating violence this month on September 14, from 10 AM to 11:30 AM.
The non-profit had already hosted a seminar on Wednesday, but it has decided to host a second seminar on the same topic due to a large interest from Korean American parents, the organizers stated. Parents learned of the reality and source of dating violence, the characteristics of people who have abusive tendencies, and the harm that teens suffer when in an abusive dating relationship. The same topics will be covered in the upcoming seminar on the 14th.
"Parents must be aware of what a healthy relationship looks like in order to prevent abusive ones and intervene when necessary," said Jennifer Oh, the domestic program manager at KFAM. "A healthy relationship is one in which two people are equal and respect each others' boundaries."
The seminar to be hosted on the 14th is sponsored by the Blue Shield Foundation, and is free. The seminar will be carried out in small groups and thus requires RSVP.
