Domestic and Dating Violence: Free Workshop Session

Hot Topic

15.5 million children in the United States live in families in which partner violence occurred at least once in the past year. And 1 in 5 teens who have been in a serious relationship report being hit, slapped or pushed by a partner. (Rihanna is not the only one).

My first memory in life is of my mother holding me up as a human shield to get my dad to stop beating her—I was just 2-years-old. I later learned that both of my parents grew up in homes where domestic violence was the norm. Now our mission is to make ‘respect for all’ the new status quo.

As part of the movement to end domestic violence, we're offering one of our signature workshop sessions, The Respect Basics, to teen advocates for free.

Free Workshop Session (Leader's Guide)
You can use the leader's guide for this 60-minute session, an excerpt from our Respect: Keep It Going! Kit, to help teens explore how to use the Respect Basics in their own lives, relationships and, ultimately, to end forms of disrespect like domestic and dating violence.

We hope this session will strengthen your domestic and dating violence prevention programs by showing teens that no matter what form of disrespect they're struggling with: respect is the remedy.
