It is also important to realize dating violence happens to young people and teenagers.
In fact, one in five teenage girls and 10% of teenage boys experienced some form of dating violence in 2015.
Throughout the series you will hear from teens themselves as dating issues such as controlling behaviors, media influences, sexting, active bystanding, and breaking up are discussed.
The videos are intended to debunk myths about dating abuse and help teens find the courage to speak up for each other, seek help if they are in an abusive relationship, understand the consequences of sexting, and be confident while navigating the complicated world of dating.
Also be aware of symptoms of depression or anxiety, as these are often a result of dating violence.
Finding warning signs is a great start, but ignoring them will not help solve the problem.
The videos can be shown together or separately to be incorporated into specific lessons or curriculums.
This video series was made possible thanks to a generous contribution from Proskauer Rose LLP.
It is important to remember, recognize and prevent other forms of violence as well.
