Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

February 22nd, 2017 - jfsbroward

 

da teen                                                        Do you remember your first relationship? Most men and women begin dating in their teenage years, a time filled with new experiences and happy life events. But did you know nearly 1.5 million teens experience physical abuse from a dating partner? Nearly 1 in 10 teens are physically harmed by their dating partner. Even more staggering is that 1 in 3 teens experience emotional, sexual and physical abuse from their dating partner.

If these statistics weren’t daunting enough, 81% of parents are not even aware that teen dating violence is a prevalent issue, and only 33% of teens are educated on the dangers of dating violence.  Goodman Jewish Family Services wants to be the first line of defense, ensuring that all teenagers learn the dangers of dating violence. Assisted by our experienced staff and KOLOT Coalition volunteers, we can tailor a presentation for your school or temple.  Please contact us to schedule a training seminar.
