Dating as a concept has an outdated meaning for today’s young people. Few report dating as it was experienced in previous years; rather, many teens report, “hooking up, going out, talking or fooling around.” Dating violence, however, does occur within the social interactions of adolescents and young adults, despite what it is called with about 10% of all adolescents reporting some form of physical violence in their dating relationship. Boys and girls are just as likely to hit a dating partner as they are to be hit by a dating partner. This educational activity will provide an update on the topic and provide tools for identification and prevention of adolescent dating violence.
The goal of this adolescent dating violence continuing education module is to update the ability of nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and social workers to recognize and treat adolescent victims of dating violence. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
- Identify signs and symptoms that may indicate an adolescent has experienced dating violence
- Discuss risk factors for becoming a victim or perpetrator of violence within a dating relationship
- Relate areas of focus for health care and prevention of dating violence
This course is intended for an interprofessional audience, including nurses, paramedics and EMTs, occupational therapists, physical therapists and social workers.
