The theme for the 2011 ASTHO, NACCHO, & Safe States Alliance webcast series is “Special Topics in Violence Prevention.”

 

Abuse in dating relationships among adolescents is a serious public health problem of growing concern. Victims of teen dating violence are more likely to do poorly in school, engage in substance abuse, and attempt suicide. To effectively address teen dating violence, policies must be implemented to empower and protect adolescents, as well as provide support to families, schools, and others that can assist teens. Public health professionals can play a critical role in addressing teen dating violence by engaging policymakers, building strong partnerships and coalitions, and advocating for comprehensive policies that emphasize education and prevention.

 

During this webinar, participants learn about existing state policies that universally address teen dating violence, the components of enacted policies, the various roles that state and local entities play in implementing these policies, and how public health professionals can build support for the adoption and enactment of policies through coalitions and collaborations with diverse partners.

 

The three webinars in this series are: Webinar 1: Using Policy to Prevent Teen Dating Violence; Webinar 2: Exploring the Intersection: Enhancing Active Living through Violence Prevention; Webinar 3: Programs and Partnerships to Prevent Gang-Related Youth Violence
