  • Description:
    "Teen dating violence is a preventable public health problem. It requires a comprehensive community approach to stop it before it starts. Three significant gaps exist in teen dating violence prevention: Little is known about what works to prevent dating violence among youth in urban communities with high crime and economic disadvantage; Local public health agencies often are not the primary agents for dating violence prevention programming in communities; A lack of local data on teen dating violence limits communities' ability to monitor and track the problem. To address these issues, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention developed Dating Matters: Strategies to Promote Healthy Teen Relationships, which aims to: Develop, implement, and evaluate a comprehensive approach to promote respectful, nonviolent dating relationships and decrease emotional, physical, and sexual dating violence among youth in high-risk urban communities; Build local public health capacity to implement evidence-based and evidence-informed violence prevention strategies across the social ecology; Identify and validate community level indicators of teen dating violence. Dating Matters: Strategies to Promote Healthy Teen Relationships employs a comprehensive approach to violence prevention at each level of the social ecology." - p. [1]
