Guideline for Parents of Teens Reporting Dating Violence

 

 

The Guideline for Parents of Teens Reporting Dating Violence offers parents evidenced-informed, practical steps to effectively respond to teens experiencing violence in dating relationships. The guideline was developed through focus groups with parents and teens asking about their thoughts on effective responses to dating violence scenarios.  Through these conversations with parents and teens, the researchers developed five steps to effectively responding to teens reporting dating violence.   This research was funded by a grant through an Innovative and Collaborative Academic Partnership (iCAP) grant through the University of Texas at Arlington School of Social work in collaboration with Brighter Tomorrows and was conducted by Dr. Beverly M. Black and Kathleen M. Preble. We hope you find this to be a useful tool to effective dating violence response.
