Training toolkit helps school staff identify and intervene in teenage dating abuse
April 06, 2013
Recognizing that schools can help prevent teen violence, AIR’s National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments developed a training toolkit on teenage dating abuse for nurses, guidance counselors, and other school support staff. This kind of abuse is defined as a pattern of actual or threatened acts of physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse by adolescents against a current or former dating partner. The training toolkit advises participants on how to identify healthy or unhealthy relationships, establish appropriate policies to address abuse, and extend positive norms throughout school communities. Developed with funding and input from the U.S. Department of Education, this free guide is available on the center’s website.
