WJCS Highlights Resources to Reduce Teen Dating
Violence During Awareness, Prevention Month

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. About one in 10 teens reported being physically abused by a boyfriend or girlfriend in 2013. One in three teen girls suffer teen relationship abuse every year. It's a time for communities to work together to promote safe, healthy relationships. WJCS offers expert, research-proven  treatment for victims of domestic abuse in its Treatment Center for Trauma and Abuse; groups such as Empowering Moms & Kids; in-school specially trained counselors through its Margaret's Place Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation program, and healthy relationships support groups for teens with special needs and autism and LGBTQ youth. How else can parents prepare their children? Click here for some tips from giverespect.org.
