Our Domestic Violence 101 for Teens presentations empower adolescents to create healthy relationships—and to seek support when needed—through a developmentally appropriate introduction to teen dating violence and domestic violence. These presentations help teens recognize potentially abusive relationships, better understand what creates a healthy relationship, and gain an understanding of how the cycle of violence may apply to their lives. Provided to teens in school and community settings, they represent a critical component of our efforts to support young people in breaking the cycle of violence through prevention and intervention.
For for potential teen allies, like parents, teachers, and afterschool program staff, La Casa also provides Domestic Violence 101 for Teens presentations highlighting the particular dynamics of abuse often present in youth and teen relationships.
