Teen Dating Violence Fact Sheets
Teen dating violence is a highly prevalent issue. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in four adolescents reports verbal, physical, emotional, or sexual abuse from a dating partner.
To change this statistic, in 2011, it became a NJ state law requirement for all NJ school districts to instate dating violence education in the health curriculum. To enforce compliance with this law, the NJ Domestic Violence Fatality and Near Fatality Review Board, along with a number of leading agencies in NJ, has endorsed a series of fact sheets on teen dating violence to guide administrators and educators in the implementation of dating violence education programs.
VAWC in collaboration with the NJ Domestic Violence Fatality and Near Fatality Review Board have compiled Teen Dating Violence Factsheets for Educators and Community members.
