Dating Matters: Understanding Teen Dating Violence Prevention is a new 60-minute, interactive online training designed to help educators, youth-serving organizations, and others working with teens understand the risk factors and warning signs associated with teen dating violence. It was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in partnership with Liz Claiborne Inc.
In this interview, Dr. Diane Hall, a behavioral scientist with the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control at the CDC, talks about the goal of Dating Matters and how this new tool will provide educators with the knowledge and resources they need to implement prevention measures in their schools.
Dating Matters will be featured in the next Prevent Connect Web Conference “Violence is Everywhere” Countering a Culture of Violence Through Norms Change. Spaces for the March 16 session are still open. The March 9 session is full.
