Tue, 09/15/2020 - 3:45pm

    On Tuesday, Sept. 29, at 6 p.m., the Camden Public Library will host Amy Carpenter for an online presentation about the Be Strong, Be Wise program related to her book by the same name. This talk will be held via the Zoom platform.

    A psychotherapist, former youth worker, writer, and life coach, Carpenter draws on twenty-five years of experience. She designed the safety education program using the methods described in her book, along with wisdom gained from her own life as a parent and survivor.

    Carpenter has always been an advocate for self-awareness as a means to personal empowerment, according to the Library, in a news release.

    “Never is this more important than in the arena of sexual safety,” said Carpenter, in the release.

    Her classes empower youth to develop a deeper understanding of oneself in relation to dominant culture, according to the Library. Be Strong, Be Wise is now being offered to schools, youth organizations, and families as a way to equip young people with the internal tools that increase confidence, and support healthy relationships on all levels.
