TDVAM 5th Annual Youth Conference 2022
Nearly 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner in a single year. Often, high school students lack the knowledge to identify unhealthy relationship behaviors. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness does not stop there. Research shows that college students are not equipped to deal with dating abuse either – 57% say it is difficult to identify and 58% say they don’t know how to help someone who’s experiencing it. Increasing education regarding teen dating violence is critical because violent relationships in adolescence can have serious ramifications by putting the victims at higher risk for substance abuse, eating disorders, risky sexual behavior and further domestic violence.
WomenShelter of Long Beach is thrilled to host its third virtual conference event in recognition of National Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. The Fifth Annual Youth Conference, “Unmasked: Knowing the Red Flags Behind Teen Dating” welcomes youth (14-18 years old), college students, adult caregivers, and service providers. We invite you to join us in a safe space to learn about the red flags behind teen dating and how to build healthy relationships. The goal is to increase awareness regarding teen dating violence, the effects, and supportive resources available through interactive presentations, engaging conversations and moving testimonies by survivors.
