Teen Dating Violence Prevention

Teen dating violence (TDV) is a pattern of violent or manipulative behaviors by a partner (or ex-partner) to gain power and maintain control in a relationship. TDV can happen online or in person and includes physical, sexual, emotional, verbal, financial violence, and stalking.

For San Diego students who responded in a 2019 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, one in 16 experience physical violence, one in 10 experience sexual violence, and one in five experience emotional violence. These rates more than double for lesbian, gay, and bisexual students.

Teen dating violence is serious and can negatively impact a student's mental health and academics, which is why the San Diego County Office of Education is a partner on the TDV Committee of the San Diego Domestic Violence Council that provides resources and supports to educators and families.

The TDV Committee meets every 3rd Wednesday of the month. If you are interested in joining the committee or would like additional information, please contact the committee at teendv.sddvc@gmail.com
