Rubys workshop at Annual Meeting

NCSF thanks Ruby B. Johnson, LCSW, LCDC, for providing a Consent Workshop entitled Power: The Individual following the Annual Meeting for CP reps, NCSF Board Members, Advocates and Staff. By the end of the workshops, participants could evaluate coercion, capacity, and advocacy in negotiating power exchange.
