The video is the most recent addition to its pioneering Teen Dating Abuse (TDA) program, a comprehensive cost-free classroom experience for high school students that since its inception in 1992 has reached more than 50,000 Essex County teens to help prevent them from entering into or remaining in abusive dating relationships.
In addition, TDA runs a program for parent and community groups called “Teen Dating: the Untold Story” Completing the circle, workshops for educators can be presented in conjunction with staff development days. “I strongly believe that awareness is the most powerful weapon against this serious problem.” “Learning about dating abuse has definitely affected my thinking in a positive way,” said Jane Mousseau, senior at Columbia High School and Co-president of its Teen Dating Abuse Club.
“I now want everyone to realize their own self worth and know that tolerating dating abuse as a victim, perpetrator, or witness is never an option.” She is a trained TDA program presenter who has been presenting to middle school students for three years.
Specific topics include identifying warning signs, communicating with friends and ending an abusive relationship.
“New to the dynamics of dating, most teens are naïve to the subtle signs of abuse making them particularly vulnerable,” said Diane Beni, NCJW/Essex co-chair of the video production.
