About this Event

Presented by Jana Pongratz at The Womens Center Tarrant County .

Helping teenagers navigate relationships is a top parenting/clinical questions that we hear. Jana Pongratz will join us for an interactive dialogue about walking with teens through relationships and technology.

Prevention begins with education, but talking about child sexual abuse can be scary for parents and children alike. In this discussion-based presentation, we will explore teachable moments and age-appropriate language to empower parents and children to recognize, respond to and report potential abuse. Specific topics include physical and sexual abuse, sexting and cyberbullying, teen dating violence and healthy relationships. Learning more about the facts, indicators and talking points, will equip parents and caregivers with confidence to continue the conversation at home with their child.

This training will be applicable for therapists, social workers, parents and anyone who is supporting a teenager or preparing for a teenager.

From 9:00am-11:00am join us for “Sexting, Dating Violence and Healthy Relationships for Teens”.

From 11:00am-12:00pm join us for a free box lunch and tour of The Gladney Home.

For over 130 years, Gladney's mission has been Creating Bright Futures Through Adoption. In 2019 Gladney opened our doors to meet the housing and care needs of pre-teen and teen girls who are currently living in foster care. The state of Texas informed Gladney of their biggest need and we are here to help. Our main goal is to fulfill Gladney's mission and find loving, caring and permanent homes for each and every child we serve. In the event we are unable to find a forever family for any of the young ladies who are living in our Gladney Home, our goals are the following; preparation for life after foster care and support for healing from their past trauma. Gladney continues to evolve and meet the ever changing needs of the children and parents we serve, but we cannot do this alone- join us to learn how you can connect!
