How to prevent dating violence after christian dating divorce
It is also important to realize dating violence happens to young people and teenagers.
In fact, one in five teenage girls and 10% of teenage boys experienced some form of dating violence in 2015.
Note: This is not something we as a society should only spend a month focusing on; it deserves constant prevention efforts and attention.
Domestic violence also plays a role in mass shootings.
A study by Everytown for Gun Safety of every identifiable mass shooting (shooting in which four or more people were murdered) between January 2009 and July 2014 found that 57% of them involved the killing of a family member or a current or former intimate partner of the shooter.
It is important to create spaces, such as school communities, where the behavioral norms are not tolerant of abuse in dating relationships.
The message must be clear that treating people in abusive ways will not be accepted, and policies must enforce this message to keep students safe.
