TDV is a serious problem among our girls and boys, but many families operate under the belief that it won’t happen to them.
However, decades of research conducted by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, American Medical Association, World Health Organization, and other qualified organizations indicate that approximately 1.5 million teens experience TDV per year with many of them starting to experience violence as early as 11-15 years-old.
Abusive behaviors become “normalized” for teens experiencing TDV making them less likely to question their partner’s bad behavior.
There are a variety of reasons for this, including the fact that many of them can’t correctly identify the warning signs of an abusive relationship.Consider attending Child Crisis Arizona’s new 2-hour workshop focused specifically on the needs of teens, .This workshop is designed to help give parents/caregivers the tools they need to support their teen, and offers strategies for recognizing and preventing teen dating violence.You can register for an upcoming session online or call 480-834-9424.We offer sessions throughout the year at both our Mesa and Phoenix Child Crisis Arizona locations, as well as in the community.
