Teen Dating Violence: Economic Impact – Education & Earnings @ BWJP Webinar
Oct 29 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Dating violence in adolescence not only takes a physical and emotional toll on young women, it also leads to less education and lower earnings later in life.    A young woman’s educational performance may be hindered by her partner’s actions, such as destroying books or homework or causing injuries that prevent her from going to school.

Researchers analyzed survey data of about 500 single mothers who were, on average, 32 years old and earned less than $7,000 per year. Participants who had been victimized by dating partners as adolescents obtained significantly less education.  Each additional year of education was associated with an extra $855 in earnings.

Teen Dating Violence and Protection Orders
Nov 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

This webinar will explore the topic of teen dating violence. Many teenagers and young adults are experiencing abuse in their relationships. This abuse can look vastly different than the abuse experienced by adult victims of domestic violence. Teens and young adults relate to each other, as well as their environment differently than adults. They are also well versed in technology and social media. Because of these reasons, teen dating abuse may take different forms and require different relief than that needed for an adult relationship.  Several states allow teens to obtain protection orders, and some even provide protection orders with relief that specifically meets the needs of teens and young adults.
