Washginton, DC -- Today, U. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC , nearly 1 in 11 high school females and 1 in 15 high school males report having experienced physical dating violence, and 1 in 9 high school females and 1 in 36 high school males report having experienced sexual dating violence.
Jennifer Wexton. To help our teens who are suffering from this abuse, we need to raise awareness of this issue, break the stigma, and promote the importance of safe, healthy relationships. Now, with the advent of social media, there are even more tools and avenues that are used to pursue and harass innocent victims," said Rep.
Brian Fitzpatrick. This bipartisan resolution is a step to empower victims and educate the public. Together, we can raise awareness about teen dating violence and promote safe, healthy relationships. Ashley Hinson. Dating violence can take on many different forms including physical violence, sexual violence, psychological aggression, and stalking. In recent years, technology-facilitated dating violence has been on the rise amongst teenagers, which include actions such as cyber extortion or posting private photos of a partner without their consent with the goal of public humiliation.
While dating violence can affect any teen, young women, racial and ethnic minorities, and LGBTQ teens can face disproportionate rates of violence. Unhealthy relationships that start early in life can continue to have long-lasting impacts on the survivor's life well into adulthood. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, teens who experience dating violence are more likely to experience depression, anxiety, substance use, and suicidal thoughts. Teens can face many challenges in reporting dating violence and getting help.
Fears about disclosing dating violence to a parent or loved one can lead to many teens suffering in silence, unaware of the resources available to them. Raising awareness about recognizing dating violence and the importance of safe and healthy relationships is essential to help teens who face this abuse. Earlier today, Wexton hosted a virtual roundtable with local school counselors and resource providers to raise awareness of teen dating violence and discuss safe and healthy dating relationships.
