There are many programs that help prevent bullying, but very few that are specifically designed to support and heal the victims of bullying. The Empowerment Space was developed to fill this void.
The Empowerment Space helps adolescent and teen children heal from bullying by providing a safe space filled with support, guidance and education. Created by Danielle Matthew, a licensed family and marriage therapist with over 20 years of experience, The Empowerment Space is a 10-week program for children between the ages of 10 and 17. Through weekly meetings and at-home activities for the child, parent involvement and school engagement; participants are able to increase self-esteem, learn effective communication techniques and gain knowledge on how to best cope and respond to bullying.
Danielle Matthew and The Empowerment Space also provide speaking presentations and educational resources to help guide those who may be impacted by bullying.
