Teens who experiencing dating violence are more likely to suffer long-term negative behavioral and health consequences, including suicide attempts, depression, substance abuse, unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. However, there are interventions that are helping to prevent dating violence, increase safety and improve health. In this session, presenters will give an overview of the research on teen dating violence and its impact on youth, and will offer promising programs on how to respond. Specific clinic interventions will be featured and tools and resources for health care providers, teachers and parents will also be shared.   Participants will have the opportunity to hear from That’s Not Cool, who have developed culturally responsive prevention and intervention strategies, as well as youth-driven and youth-led prevention programs.
