Teach Adults to Talk to Teens About Dating Abuse

A young man stands behind an anxious-looking young woman.

"You don't have to be an expert" to talk to teens about dating abuse, says Dana Fleitman, senior manager of prevention and training programs for anti-violence nonprofit Jewish Women International, as she introduces "Dating Abuse: Tools for Talking to Teens" via video.

The free interactive online toolkit is a collaboration of Jewish Women International and the Avon Foundation for Women. The two organizations aimed to help anyone in the community facilitate workshops on teen dating abuse. After signing up to be a facilitator, you'll have access to an online portal with everything you need to run the workshop, including a script, handouts and marketing materials.

The site also offers online courses on promoting healthy relationships and intervening when you think a teen is in an unhealthy relationship.

Jewish Women International is part of the Coalition to End Violence Against Women and Girls Globally and serves as a steering committee member of the National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence Against Women as well as the NO MORE Coalition.
