Every student, parent and teacher needs to be aware of the prevalence of teen dating violence in the US.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that one in eleven adolescents is a victim of physical dating violence.
In most cases of TDV, violence is used to get another to do what he/she wants, to gain power and control, to cause humiliation and to promote fear, and to retaliate against a partner (Foshee & Langwick, 2010).
The MDVPTB funds 44 domestic violence agencies providing services to all 83 Michigan counties as well as 29 sexual assault agencies reaching 56 Michigan counties.Jealousy scans for evidence to prove the point – that others will be preferred and rewarded more than you.
