Course Description:  According to statistics, one in three teenagers have experienced violence in a dating relationship. The number of teens who experience verbal, emotional and even sexual abuse in dating relationships is even greater. Dating violence impacts all economic, racial, cultural, religious and social groups. As teenagers inherently have far less power and psychological influence in society than adults, they face an even higher risk of serious injury. Many teens misperceive abusive acts as signs of “love,” which significantly impacts their ability to ask for help. This course will discuss assessment techniques for teen dating abuse and address pertinent treatment issues for the victimized teen, including prevention skills for dating violence. Attention will also be given to the Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay and Transgender teen population as related to sociological issues that affect teen dating violence. Treatment dynamics involving parents whose teenager is in a violent relationship will also be addressed.
