Juvenile Domestic Violence, 8 hours
Reported violence among teens is growing. While the dynamics of violent relationships sometimes mirrors that of adults, understanding the particular psycho-social developmental stage of adolescents is critical in this context. This course addresses the particular role that love relationships play in teens’ lives; the importance of peers is stressed as well as ways of communicating with teens so that they are able to “hear” the message. Components of teen prevention and education programs are presented.
