Approaches to Addressing Teen Dating Violence in Healthcare
From Rachel Brauer
This webinar took place Thursday, October 24, 2019.
Adolescent-centered care should encompass multiple aspects of physical, social and emotional aspects of young people’s lives, including romantic relationships. In the U.S. in the past year, nearly 1 in 10 adolescents has experienced physical or sexual abuse from a dating partner, leading to various health consequences. Despite this high prevalence and related health issues, teen dating violence is often overlooked by health care providers. This webinar will begin with an overview of teen dating violence and current research. We will then dive into health care identification and response to adolescent intimate partner violence and where leaders in the field hope to go from here.
