For many rural advocates, supporting teens is some of the most intimidating and confusing work they do. To support teen sexual violence survivors, advocates have to be able to work with and support their non-offending parents/guardians, as well as navigate different systems. It’s a lot to manage. However, it’s also true that rural advocates are creative and compassionate and can grow their skills to provide this important service. The tools and ideas presented here will help rural advocates welcome parents/guardians into advocacy services for themselves and navigate the boundaries necessary to provide empowering advocacy to the whole family.
