Strategic Sharing Guide - Workbook for Youth

This workbook, developed by the Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health, guides young people who have experienced traumatic life events in understanding whether and how to share their stories for the purpose of advocacy. Exercises prompt young people to think about their motivations for sharing, the risks and benefits, how to assess comfort with different audiences/venues, and how to stay safe when uncomfortable emotions or questions arise. RHY programs that share youth stories can use the workbook to prepare young people before they give consent. Download the free guide.
