"Very informative, great exercise to explore language and changing our line of questioning to help enable us to share the problem rather then isolating young women to feel like they need to figure it out themselves. (Solution focused) Jocelyn helped to remind me and provide a deeper understanding of the physical, emotional and social risks involved that can place burdens on leaving CCE or other criminal activity."
