Be A Safe Space: Addressing Teen Dating Violence

When: Friday, February 24 - 11:00 AM

Duration: 1 hours 30 minutes

Location: Zoom

Event Details:

February marks Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Each year nearly 1.5 million young people experience abuse by a dating partner. Understanding the dynamics of dating violence and how it can impact youth differently is particularly important for providers who work with youth. During this session we explored how dating violence impacts young people from historically marginalized communities, how to approach conversations with young people who have experienced dating violence, and what we all can do to move towards prevention. 

Participants would:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of dating violence dynamics in teen relationships. 
  • Discuss how dating violence impacts young people from marginalized communities. 
  • Identify ways to engage in intervention by empowering young people to have healthy relationships and support those who have experienced dating violence.
