Teen Dating Violence Awareness

February 14, 2023

Uncategorized

I’ve spent over a decade working to protect my clients’ privacy and give them control back after being subjected to sexual misconduct and harassment. 

When something like this happens to you, it’s normal to feel alone and afraid. That’s where I come in.

My clients experience significant relief and freedom because they know I’m there to brainstorm the next step, Google their name to make sure nothing unwanted pops up, and do the mental and emotional work for them so they can focus on school, work, and life.

Let me do the stressful work for you – so you can get back to living your life.

Hi, I'm Lindsay.

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness about the prevalence of dating violence among teenagers and to promote healthy relationships.

Dating violence can take many forms, including physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. It can happen to anyone, regardless of their age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. However, studies have shown that young people are at higher risk for dating violence, and the effects can be long-lasting and devastating.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 11 high school students reports being a victim of physical dating violence, and 1 in 9 reports experiencing sexual dating violence. Furthermore, nearly half of all adolescents in dating relationships have experienced emotional abuse.

It’s important to recognize the signs of dating violence, which can include physical injuries, changes in behavior, and isolation from family and friends. Teenagers who are experiencing dating violence may also struggle with low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression.

If you or someone you know is experiencing dating violence, it’s essential to seek help. There are resources available to provide support and guidance, including hotlines, counseling services, and support groups. The National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-SAFE) is available 24/7 to provide support and resources for victims of domestic violence, including teen dating violence.

Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month provides an opportunity to educate young people about healthy relationships and the importance of setting boundaries and seeking help if they are experiencing abuse. As an attorney and educator, I help schools, camps, and youth groups by providing educational resources, workshops, and programs to prevent dating violence and mitigate the harms.
