Teen Dating Violence

Teen dating violence is a pattern of abusive behavior in adolescent and young adult relationships.

 
Like other forms of abuse, it can take shape through physical, emotional/psychological, or sexual abuse, and often it could be a combination. 
 
Unfortunately, teen dating violence occurs much more often than most people think, with approximately one out of every five girls reporting physical and/or sexual abuse.
 
Other reports state that those between the age of 16 and 24 are more than three times as likely to experience dating abuse as the national average.
