Teen Dating Violence
Teen dating abuse and violence is a growing problem; some recent reports in the media shed light on it and programs that have been set up to help address it.
I recently discovered this powerful interview that CBS Evening News and @katiecouric have run recently regarding the growing problem of teen dating abuse and violence. The video below shows part of the CBS broadcast and then delves deeper with Jane Randel of Liz Claiborne, Vice President and developer of the "Love Is Not Abuse" curriculum (which is available to your school or group through MFT3), and Catherine Pierce, Deputy Director for the Justice Department's Office on Violence Against Women. Please watch, learn, talk with your kids, and share with as many people as you can. Remember that silence perpetuates abuse and violence, speaking up can stop it.
