Teen Dating Violence (TDV) is a public health problem that needs to be addressed as approximately one in 10 high school students experience physical or sexual dating violence. Participants will benefit by learning about adverse mental health and educational outcomes associated with TDV and populations that are at-risk for perpetration or victimization. Participants will also gain insight into the use of a three-tiered model to address TDV which includes universal prevention programs, intervention programs for students at-risk and supports for students impacted by TDV.
