Youth who witness or experienced violence (at home or in their relationships) are at increased risk for victimization and perpetration of violence in future relationships.
In Texas, “dating violence” is defined as an act by an individual that is against another individual with whom that person has or has had a dating relationship and that is intended to result in physical harm, bodily injury, assault or sexual assault, or that is a threat that reasonably places the individual in fear of imminent physical harm, bodily injury, assault or sexual assault, but does not include defensive measures to protect oneself.
(Like domestic violence, dating violence typically includes a pattern of hurtful and controlling behaviors such as physical abuse (hitting, slapping, destroying property, driving fast to scare you), psychological/emotional abuse (yelling, name-calling, put-downs, threats), sexual abuse (forcing or coercing sex, unwanted sex acts, exposure to pornography) and stalking (following, calling or texting repeatedly, monitoring activity), which can occur in person and/or online.
The contest is open for submissions until February 9, 2018 and we’ll announce winners in February for Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.
Winning videos will be shared on WCA social media, in our newsletters, and as examples for future contests. Interested in bringing a presentation about these issues to your class or club?
