Teen Dating Abuse Report 2009

Check out the Teen Dating Abuse Report 2009: Impact of the Economy and Parent/Teen Dialogue on Dating Relationships and Abuse (pdf). I found the link and this description on Minnesota Center Against Violence and Abuse website:
A recent study found that approximately one in three teens have experienced verbal, physical or sexual abuse in their dating relationships and that there is a direct relationship between the declining economy and the increase of teen dating violence. The study also found that not enough parents recognize behaviors that may be warning signs of abuse.

This study is just one more example that our society is beginning to make a major shift away from dismissing dating and sexual violence among non-strangers as a private matter of little consequence.
