Teen-Age Dating Violence.
Kyle, Karla J.
It has been estimated that one out of three teenage girls will be involved in an abusive relationship or experience violence in their relationships. Given the fact that studies are showing higher incidence of dating violence reported among teenagers, the importance and usefulness of this topic for anyone who works with adolescents cannot be understated. School personnel (teachers, counselors, administrators) can play an important part in intervening and preventing dating violence. Educational professionals have a responsibility to be informed and to be ready to take an active role as they believe that schools must study this social issue. It is within the schools that students have the greatest opportunity to be exposed to alternative relationships and where they have access to support services. Incorporating dating violence into the discussion when it surfaces in the classroom, building it into the discussion when it surfaces in the classroom, building it into the curriculum, facilitating student awareness and support systems, promoting parental and community awareness and involvement; and cultivating and using an integrated curriculum are methods of becoming involved and helping students learn about healthy relationships.
