HHS PTSO Parent Education Night with the One Love Foundation
Film Screening: Escalation
Tuesday, March 17, 7 - 8:30 p.m.
HHS New Science and Language Building, Room 808
Join the the One Love Foundation, the HHS Wellness Center and the PTSO in this important Parent Education Night to talk about the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors, and how you and your loved ones can be empowered to trust your gut and act when you feel something is off. Escalation is a film that honestly and compellingly tells the story of an abusive relationship –– from its sweet beginnings to the tragic end. The authentic depiction of unhealthy behavior escalating into violence helps you understand and recognize the early signs of relationship abuse. The 40-minute screening will be followed by a guided discussion. The film is rated PG-13.
