Teen dating violence workshop

Education and prevention programs are in more demand than ever as lawmakers, schools, domestic violence agencies, youth, and adults alike recognize that we can stop domestic violence before it starts.For more detailed information about our prevention and education programs for students, please click here.The Lindsay Ann Burke Memorial Fund is pleased to present it’s original workshop on DVD to help schools implement these laws.Teachers who are educated and well-trained in dating violence will be able to identify episodes at school, safely help victims, and play an active role in the prevention of dating violence through education in the classroom.

This DVD is NOT intended to be used to teach teens. Member: AAHPERD, RIAHPERD, ASHA, RICSNT Karen Murphy, M. She taught health at Curtis Corner Middle School and presently teaches health at South Kingstown High School.Most parents of 11-to-14-year-olds don’t feel prepared to talk to their kids about healthy relationships and teen dating violence.They may not even want to acknowledge that their kids have started dating.Even as young teens are moving towards stronger peer influence, they are still listening to what their parents have to say.In fact, an independent evaluation of the Start Strong program showed that positive parent-child communication predicted positive healthy relationship outcomes among youth.In 2007 Rhode Island was the first state to pass a comprehensive dating violence education law known as the Lindsay Ann Burke Act.
