Healthy Relationships for Teens

Healthy Relationships for teens

Friday, February 17th 2023

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Pennington Family Conference Room

Appropriate for teens and parents who would like to learn more about how to identify an unhealthy relationship. Virtual options are being considered – if you wish to participate live via Zoom please indicate on the registration and a link will be sent.

February is Dating Violence Awareness Month, a national effort to raise awareness about the impacts of dating abuse and encourage communities to support young people in seeking healthy relationships and recognizing unhealthy ones. Alarmingly, 1 in 3 young people will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse by someone they are in a relationship with while in high school or college.

We welcome Nancy Messner from Community Action Partnership, who will discuss the difference between healthy relationships vs unhealthy ones, help parents to recognize the signs of dating abuse and how to talk to your kids about dating, the warning signs to look out for and how to get help.
