Toolkit to Incorporate Adolescent Relationship Abuse Prevention Into Existing Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Programming
The link between teen pregnancy and violence has been documented by researchers for two decades. Understanding the dynamics of adolescent relationship abuse and working to prevent it can help adolescent pregnancy prevention projects meet their mission of promoting the sexual health and overall well-being of young people.
This toolkit, prepared by the Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program’s Training and Technical Assistance and Meeting Logistical Support project for the Family and Youth Services Bureau, will walk sexual health educators and other youth workers through the steps of making relationship violence prevention an integral part of their adolescent pregnancy prevention work.
