Books about teenage dating violence
Again, the statistics are that roughly 10% of teens reported being in a physically harmful relationship; it’s not always obvious to teens (just like it’s not always obvious to adults! Although I don’t think that the US Department of Health and Human Services site offers the most useful information, I’m linking to it because it does offer tips and help as to cultivating conversations about Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.
This is the toolkit for adults to talk about this month and what the purpose behind the campaign is.
I would highly recommend the book to anyone who was interested in understanding the dynamics of initmate partner violence.
Twenty percent of women between the ages of 11 and 17 have reported being raped, assaulted, or stalked by a romantic partner and fourteen percent of men between the ages of 11 and 17 have reported being raped, assaulted, or stalked by a romantic partner.That knowledge that you care can change their world.
