Teen Dating Violence - Henderson, NC - April 25, 2019

Teen Dating Violence

Teens experience some of the highest rates of intimate partner violence and stalking in our communities. We know that prevention strategies that address risk and protective factors can help stop the occurrence of teen dating violence and that specific interventions can help protect and support teen survivors. It is, therefore, imperative that domestic violence advocates learn about the prevalence of teen dating violence, are aware of specific interventions for working with teens, and work to implement prevention strategies. Some of the interventions covered in this training include safety planning directed at the social media platforms used for technology abuse, and legal recourses available for teens. In addition, programs should have policies in place for how to serve minors without parental consent in order to remove barriers to safety for teen survivors. This training will assist advocates in meeting these goals to become better equipped to serve teen survivors of intimate partner violence and stalking. 

Training Objectives:

  • Define teen dating violence
  • Increase awareness about technology abuse and implications for safety planning
  • Explore role of domestic violence agencies in serving teen victims
  • Explain the legal recourses for teenage victims
  • Examine teen dating violence prevention strategies and resources

Training is free to all participants regardless of NCCADV Membership Status
