Developing Healthy Adolescent Dating Relationships
Research indicates that dating violence is experienced by many adolescents, that it begins early in dating relationships, and that it is associated with many negative outcomes that can last into adulthood. Therefore, there is a need for effective education and programming focused on helping adolescents learn to develop healthy dating relationships.
