Workshop Description
Teen dating violence (TDV), a form of intimate partner violence, despite its prevalence, is still misunderstood. There are many enduring stereotypes and sometimes an acceptance of harmful dating behaviors in youth, which cause long-term consequences. Many parents, caregivers, and those working with youth might miss the signs and symptoms of TDV, which means many youth may suffer in silence. Youth who need help may also face systematic challenges in getting help. This workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of TDV, its prevalence, signs and symptoms of abuse, long-term consequences, and systematic challenges in getting help.  


Learning Objectives

After the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Describe the rates and prevalence of abuse among youth.
2. Explain the reasons youth experience a higher rate of abuse.
3. Discuss to the cycle of abuse in teen relationships.
4. Describe the warning signs in youth relationships which may indicate abuse.
5. Identify barriers to seeking support

This workshop is approved for 3.0 continuing education credit hours.
