Key Components This strategy involves starting programs that help teens of both sexes prevent dating violence; address relationship issues through school-based support groups for victims; provide intervention and counseling groups for offenders; train school and health care personnel so that they recognize signs of dating violence; and develop a curriculum that teaches teens how to recognize the signs of abusive behavior, get help, or help a friend in need.Many programs also create hotlines through which teens can report abuse or seek assistance.Examples of Success and Results The Dating Violence Intervention Project (DVIP) grew out of a partnership between a treatment program for batterers and a shelter for victims.Established in 1986, the Boston-area program aims to "prevent boys and girls from learning to accept violence in their earliest relationships." DVIP programs include 'awareness weeks,' assemblies and theater performances built around the theme of respect; three-session courses in which former victims and abusers train students to identify abusive behaviors, engage in respectful communication, and manage conflict; special class sessions; performances in which youth dramatize issues of violence and gender stereotypes; 24-hour hotline and counseling services; an eight-session course that explores the causes of dating violence and trains youth as prevention advocates; and training for school staff so that they can recognize signs of dating violence among students.The National Online Resource Center on Violence Against Women offers more detailed information on dating violence.

The Williston, North Dakota, Network Against Teenage Violence developed the curriculum When Love Really Hurts: Dating Violence Curriculum.

The Southern California Coalition for Battered Women offers Skills for Violence-Free Relationships, an education program for use with students ages 13 to 18.

Adapted for use by school personnel, shelter workers, and youth advocates, the curriculum incorporates lessons and lectures, role playing, and storytelling.

Male students who threaten or abuse a female peer must participate in weekly counseling groups.

Student participants report that the program taught them the characteristics of abusive relationships and how to get out of abusive relationships.
