Recognizing and Responding to Teen Dating Violence in the Clinical Setting
CHOP’s Center for Violence Prevention will be presenting a free webinar for pediatric physicians, nurses, hospital staff, and clinically based social workers entitled, "Recognizing and Responding to Teen Dating Violence in the Clinical Setting.”
Teen Dating Violence (TDV) is a serious public health issue that is alarmingly widespread. While many people view intimate partner violence (IPV) as an adult problem, approximately 1 in 3 teens in the United States is a victim of TDV.
Like intimate partner violence among adults, TDV is a pattern of behaviors aimed to gain or maintain power or control over a current or former dating partner and includes physical, sexual, emotional, or verbal abuse. However, unlike adult IPV, TDV incorporates the additional vulnerabilities of age and stage of life. If unaddressed, these foundational relationships can normalize unhealthy relationships and lead to a pattern of further abuse. Survivors of TDV experience higher rates of depression, substance abuse, suicide attempts, eating disorders, poor school performance, unplanned pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, and future victimization.
Hosted by the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia’s Center for Violence Prevention (CVP), this webinar will educate providers on the issue of teen dating violence; specifically, how to recognize it, how to help patients, and where to find resources.
