Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this paper was to review the literature on Teen Dating Violence (TDV), create an intervention program, identify funding sources, and write a grant proposal. This author found that 1 in 4 youth experience TDV during adolescence. This author identified many risk factors that contribute to these abusive relationships such as childhood maltreatment, substance use, risky sexual behaviors, sadness, and suicidality. This author also found a strong correlation between TDV and foster youth due to the their exposure to childhood maltreatment. This author collaborated with Human Options to create a teen dating violence intervention program for foster youth. This proposed program would include, one-hour presentations about TDV, individual therapy for youth and families, and group therapy. The Stuart Foundation was identified as a possible funding source for this program. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for completion of this project.
