This curriculum was designed for social workers to help them gain a better understanding of teen dating violence. The purpose of this curriculum is to inform social workers about the signs, prevalence, assessment, risk factors, impact, policies, interventions, and role of the child welfare worker on the subject of teen dating violence. With anywhere between 10% and 33% of teens estimated to be in abusive relationships it is important for social workers to have a strong understanding of the topic so they can intervene on their behalf. It is especially important for social workers to understand this topic because there is currently no law in California to protect teens from encountering abuse at the hands of a partner. Through the use of, PowerPoint presentations, group activities, case studies, and web based videos social workers will be better trained and informed on the various aspects of this serious social problem.
