Dating Violence - Know the Truth

More than half (57%) of college students who report having been in an abusive dating relationship said it occurred in college.

During their college years young adults begin to form serious romantic relationships and/or continue to grow the romantic relationships they may have started in their teenage years. Yet with limited understanding of healthy and unhealthy behaviors in dating relationships, college students are susceptible to becoming targets of dating abuse. 

Objectives:

             Increase students' understanding of dating abuse

             Enabling students to reach out to provide support  and help to a friend or family member who may be involved in an abusive relationship

             Increase help-seeking behavior among students involved in abusive dating  relationships

Bottom Line:

Everyone must get involved in preventing dating abuse and have a better understanding of the resources available to those who are involved in such abuse in order to help and support them.
