February Is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

FEATURED RECORDED WEBINAR:
"How Teens Are Creating Healthy Relationships in the Age of Snapchat" by Rev. Lydia Mulkey, Youth Minister

Teen dating violence is defined as the physical, sexual, or psychological/ emotional violence within a dating relationship, as well as stalking. It can occur in person or electronically and may occur between a current or former dating partner. In a nationwide survey, 9.4 percent of high school students report being hit, slapped, or physically hurt on purpose by their boyfriend or girlfriend within the past 12 months (source: CDC)

Youth who are in abusive relationships or are exposed to domestic violence are more likely to perpetuate the cycle of abuse as adults. Education is a critical step in preventing teen dating violence. Below are some resources and tools to help you.
