FILLING THE VOID

Jessica shares her powerful story, as a young woman going off to college, soon finding herself trapped in the confines of a relationship that would change her life forever. This presentation focuses on the “void” that many young women attempt to fill by moving from one unhealthy relationship to the next, only to find that this void still remains. It is the identifying of what this “void” represents, and our working to fill it not with another person, but with feelings of value, self-worth, and acceptance as we begin to repair what no one else can.

WRECKAGE IN THE WORKPLACE

Jessica targets this presentation for companies and organizations that recognize the importance of supporting their employees that are in destructive relationships.

HELP ME, HELP HER

A presentation based on her guide book, Help Me, Help Her: A Guide to Treating Survivors of Domestic Violence.  Ms. Yaffa begins with sharing her story as a survivor of extreme domestic violence, as well as rape and then walks participants through the stages of healing; focusing on what was/wasn’t helpful along the way. Then a discussion surrounding the work she has done with thousands of survivors, utilizing information from hundreds of support groups, book interviews, and crisis interventions in order to guide the professional into appropriate assessment tools, issues surrounding cultural sensitivity, core longings, therapeutic tools, and resources. It is her intention to bring the audience full circle; from tragedy to a place of hope, understanding, education, and clinical expertise where appropriate.

WHEN IS IT RAPE?

Over 80% of sexual assault survivors report knowing their perpetrator. Even more, thousands of young men and women also express feelings of confusion surrounding the existence of rape within the context of relationship. In this presentation, renowned keynote speaker Jessica Yaffa will share her experiences around her own misconceptions about her being raped, while also exploring societal myths about acquaintance rape, and sexual exploitation in relationship. Participants will have the opportunity to identify their own beliefs about this important topic, while also discussing community trends, identifying resources, preventative tools, and exercises addressing the elimination of guilt and shame, as well as helpful activities that assist in the healing process.

RELATIONSHIP RECOVERY COACHING

In addition to keynote presentations, Jessica offers both one-on-one and group coaching for professionals and lay people looking to broaden their knowledge and understanding surrounding how trauma in relationships affects our brain, decision making process, inability to make positive choices, and overall self-concept. She works alongside therapists, first responders, faith leaders, parents, and survivors themselves as a specialist in these topics.

I’M A TEEN AND I’M IN LOVE

In this keynote presentation, national keynote speaker Jessica Yaffa uses her own story to exemplify how and why so many teens/young adults end up in abusive relationships. As a teen, Jessica fell for the first boy who told her she was beautiful. The attention he gave her filled her with a sense of value and self-esteem that was lacking. She thought, “He must love me if he gets jealous of my other friendships and relationships”, a red flag that many teens misunderstand. Throughout this presentation Jessica will focus on identifying unhealthy relationship traits, red flags, warning signs, how to reach out for help, and what to do if you or a friend believes that he/she may be in an abusive or unhealthy relationship. This presentation focuses on educating, inspiring, and empowering teen girls to build their self-esteem and find their value in order to be in a position to enter healthy relationships.
