Teen Dating Violence Program

Dating Violence Program

The dating violence program is geared towards teenagers, and presented in all three counties at the high school level. This is a particularily important age to present information about dating violence, because statistically young women between the ages of 16-24 are the most vulnerable to intimate partner violence.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • What is dating violence?
  • Methods and ways abusers use to control their victims
  • Identifying traits that are desirable in a dating partner
  • Indications of abusive behavior
