What Teen Advocates Need to Know: Teen Dating Violence in Faith Communities
This live webinar begins at 3:00 PM EST and is for teen advocates, parents, adults in the youth ministry profession, and other adults working with teens.
Teen dating violence cuts across culture, class, geography, sexual orientation, faith, and gender, though females ages 16-24 are more vulnerable to intimate partner violence than any other age group—at a rate almost triple the national average (Source: U.S. Dept. of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics).
Technology has also added a new twist to unhealthy teen relationships; because of cell phones it is now possible for controlling teens to keep tabs on their partners 24/7. Faith communities and other groups can help teens learn the warning signs of abusive relationships and develop the skills to discern the difference between affection and control.
This webinar, will explore these issues and what might work in your particular setting, including a look at an abuse prevention resource,Love – All That and More, a program designed for high school age youth.
